Entrepreneur Elon Musk and music artist Grimes welcomed a baby boy named “XÆA-1

2” to the world. This is a possible explanation for the name.

After naming the eldest son XX A-XII, Grimes is now walking under an unusual nickname.

According to an interview with the artist published by The New York Times on Wednesday, Grimes (real name Claire Boucher)’s name is now changed to “c”, which she says is synonymous with the speed of light.

The single-letter nickname is what Grimes now has in common with her 5-month-old child, and her abbreviation is “X”. C, 32, shares X with her boyfriend, Elon Musk, 49, CEO of SpaceX.

Although X is still a baby, his mother claims that he has developed a mature taste in the media.

She said: “I have seen’Apocalypse Now’ and my children.” “He likes radical art. Actually, he just likes it, and I don’t think it is a problem to interact with them at this level.

After Grimes and Musk announced the birth of their son and his name on Twitter in May, it made headlines. A day later, Grimes tweeted a complete classification of name choices:

“•X, unknown variable

•Æ, my spelling of Ai (love and/or artificial intelligence)

• A-12 = the predecessor of SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defense, only speed.Strong combat but non-violent

+ (A = Archangel, my favorite song) (Metal Rat)”

However, Grimes apparently made a mistake in her explanatory post, which Musk corrected.

He responded: “SR-71, but it can.”

Musk later explained how to pronounce it in the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. X is pronounced like the letter X, Æ is pronounced “ash”, and A-12 (“My Contribution”) is pronounced like this. Hence “X-Ash-A-12”.

Later that month, Grimes revealed in a series of Instagram comments that the couple slightly changed their son’s name to “XÆA-XII.” California law restricts names to the 26 letters of the English alphabet and certain punctuation marks, such as hyphens, apostrophes, periods, and commas.

She explained: “Roman numerals.” “It looks better… dashes are allowed.”

Musk praised the child’s mother, who “mainly came up with the name. Her name is very famous” and said: “The babies are awesome. They are little love bugs.”

According to the New York Times, C is collaborating with technology company Endel to create “AI Lullaby”, a soothing ambient noise soundtrack that helps babies fall asleep.

C said that her search for “better baby sleep conditions” for X inspired her to develop a lullaby.

She said: “When you have a baby, you always use a white noise machine.” “It’s much easier to get them to sleep if you train them in a certain audio environment. So I just wonder, is it more artistic?”

According to C, the baby “does have a smell.”

She continued: “They must like certain things.” “They don’t like other things. They totally have opinions.”

C also described how she used X’s feedback to make a lullaby.

She said: “The first version had too many bells. It caused tears and just caused confusion.” But when she adjusted, she would find that “X will smile more.”

Dirt open Regarding the coronavirus, she and Elon Musk could not meet their loved ones after welcoming the baby
