    Elon Musk And his singer girlfriend Grimes welcomed a baby boy on Monday morning. To everyone’s surprise, Elon and Grimes named their son X Æ A-12, which no one can figure how to spell and whats does it mean. According to California laws, names like this are illegal. Department of Public Health Vital Records Office, states “names aren’t allowed to have special characters according to Los Angeles laws.”

    The 32-year-old singer Grimes tweeted that their son’s name, X Æ A-12, was partly inspired by the couple’s favourite aircraft, taking to her social media, Grimes wrote, 

    She explained the inspiration behind the unusual name, saying each character represents something that is special to Elon and herself.

    Musk and Grimes won’t be able to register his name there. California law requires that names that includes 26 letters of the English alphabet. A family attorney, David Glass explained why is the name illegal, he said “In California, you can only use the ’26 characters’ of the English language in your baby name. Thus, you can’t have numbers, Roman numerals, accents, umlauts or other symbols or emojis. Although an apostrophe, for a name like ‘O’Connor,’ is acceptable.” He further stated, “If the new parents filled out X Æ A-12’s birth certificate at the hospital with the odd numbers, dashes and symbols, it will be submitted and then rejected and they’ll be asked to submit it again.”

    “They have an opportunity to appeal the rejection of the birth certificate application but it’s unlikely that it will be granted because, again, California … has been struggling with using symbols,” he adds.

    So technically in every case, their sons’ name does not meet the required criteria, therefore they cannot legally register his name as X Æ A-12.

    During an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast on Thursday, Musk shared exactly how to pronounce the name, he explained, “First of all, my partner’s the one that actually mostly came up with the name. It’s just ‘X,’ the letter ‘X,’ and the ‘Æ’ is pronounced ‘ash’ and then ‘A-12’ is my contribution. <a href=”
