After weeks of speculation about the name of Elon Musk and Claire Grimes’ son, official documents have revealed that his parents had to make some changes for the birth certificate.

The pair originally settled for ‘X Æ A-12’, in which each letter signified something close to hearts of the parents. However, after it was revealed that the laws in Los Angeles do not allow any numbers in names, 12 was altered to “XII” in Roman numerals.

Further, only the 26 letters from the English alphabet are allowed so the elven spelling of AI (Artificial Intelligence) ‘Æ’ pronounced ‘Ash’ in the name has now been turned into AE.

In the birth certificate accessed by celebrity gossip website TMZ, it was revealed the baby’s first name is just ‘X’ and his surname is Musk.

The couple welcomed their first child together in early May and took social media by storm after naming him ‘X Æ A-12’, which left netizens puzzled. The Tesla CEO later explained the meaning and how to pronounce it.
