Elon Musk and Grimes have done it again. Only days after leaving every one startled with their baby’s rather unique moniker, which broke the internet, the couple has altered it further to include a Roman numeral. 

When they first announced that their baby son was named ‘X Æ A-12’, many speculated that it was only temporary and that they may have to come up with something else for it to be accepted by the state of California. Musk and Grimes did take the suggestions into consideration, but only to have it their way. They have now changed their son’s name to X Æ A-Xii. While the meaning of the first few characters as explained by them earlier remains the same, only the last bit is slightly tweaked. The CEO of Tesla has revealed that A-12 stood for “Archangel 12, the precursor to the SR-71, coolest plane ever".

The meaning continues to be the same, except the 12 has now been replaced with its Roman numerical. 

When one of her Instagram followers asked Grimes if she and Musk changed their baby’s name, she responded to the comment under an unrelated picture saying, "X Æ A-Xii. Roman numerals. Looks better tbh", according to CNET. However, this time around, social media users have been quite honest with their reaction to Grimes and Musk’s son's new name. While one user wrote, "Dear news feed algorithm gods, I don't give a $#&@ about Elon Musk and Grimes' baby's name." Another added, "Fucking weirdos. Grimes And Elon Musk Tweak Baby's Name To Include Roman Numerals." 

Another Twitter user who just isn’t convinced with their eccentric choice of name, expressed, "@elonmusk has ruined the life of his new baby. The name is stupid." The alteration in the name has also led to people mocking the couple. "The more I read about Elon Musk the worse he gets. Who the hell uses morse code to name their baby with? Rich f***s — that's who, rich f***s who won't hire good stylists," said one. 

"California: you absolutely cannot name your baby that. Elon Musk + Grimes: oh ok we'll change it. California: to? EM + G: let's do 'X Æ A-XII' instead. California: alright, it's perfectly acceptable now," added another.
