Fans have been left in a bit of mix on social media since the announcement of X Æ A-12, as the name of their newborn.

Many have given their own form of name meaning, but the confusion seemed to drag all day. Some even felt the whole name was a prank, being that it was Musk who made the announcement on Twitter – we all know the story about his tweets.

32-year-old singer Grimes — whose birth name is Claire Boucher — has now confirmed the baby name, and has now explained its meaning down to the last letter.

“X, the unknown variable,” the new mom wrote.

“Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence),” Grimes continued, before sharing that a part of her son’s name is a nod to the CIA’s Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance plane. “A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent.”

Grimes added that the “A” in the name also represents “Archangel” — which she said is her “favorite song” — while the number “12” stood for the Chinese zodiac sign of the rat. (According to the Chinese zodiac, 2020 is the Year of the Metal Rat.)
