The internet has been abuzz about X AE A-12 Musk for the last week or so, mainly because of the outrageous name his parents have given him.

Dumb name or not, it’s always adorable seeing a parent taking care of their newborn baby, and this clip shared by Grimes earlier is no different:

X AE A-12 is Elon Musk’s seventh child, but the only one that sounds like he was named after a Gmail password. If you haven’t seen it, Elon Musk recently went on Joe Rogan’s podcast and broke down the thought process that went into the name.
Joe Rogan pretty much laughs in his face as he explains it:
The whole interview is pretty fascinating even though getting Elon Musk to elaborate on stuff is a bit like drawing blood from a stone sometimes. They discuss all kinds of things including coronavirus, the future of Tesla and Neuralink – Elon Musk’s brain implant technology.
In fact, Elon Musk reckons that within 5 – 10 years, Neuralink will be able to heal deafness, blindness and traumatic brain injuries. Not only that, but we will also have wordless communication:
Love him or hate him, you have to admire the effort and dedication Elon Musk puts into creating these new technologies and pushing the world forward in this regard. The fact he’s so down with meme culture as well (as anyone who’s seen his Twitter will attest) makes him even more of a legend. Can’t wait to see what he does next.
