Yes, the name that the tech giant and musician decided upon for their son is X Æ A-12.
California has set rules to allow state manufacturers to begin reopening on Friday from a coronavirus lockdown, Governor Gavin Newsom said, drawing an enthusiastic "Yeah!" on Twitter from Tesla Inc TSLA.O Chief Executive Elon Musk.
He said: "First of all, my partner is the one that, actually, mostly, came up with the name".
"A-12", he continued, is a nod to the "Archangel 12, the precursor to the SR-71, coolest plane ever". Musk also reflected on how odd it was to have a child in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, though he was happy his son was born on May 4, Star Wars Day. "I mean it's just X, the letter X, um, and the "Æ" is pronounced, 'Ash, ' and then, A-12 is my contribution".
In ~very~ Grimes/Elon news, the couple seem to have some uhh creative differences when it comes to the pronunciation of the name.

The 32-year-old singer, real name Claire Boucher, gave birth to the baby boy on Monday, with partner Elon Musk - the founder of Tesla and Space X - proudly sharing snaps of the new arrival on his social media pages. "I appreciate it more", he said. No weapons, no defenses, just speed.
Musk has also tweeted a few photos of X Æ A-12, including one where he used a filter to make the newborn appear to have facial tattoos.
However, Grimes made a mistake in her tweet, which Musk corrected.
"I sure hope so", replied Musk, who shares custody of his five other sons with ex-wife Justine Wilson.
