It does sound like a joke name, but Elon Musk has named his son ‘X Æ A-12 Musk’ and the internet is absolutely loving it. Here are 8 of the best, funniest memes so far on the baby X Æ A-12 Musk.

Elon Musk is a well-known mad businessman/entrepreneur/inventor/mad-man.

In 2016, he was annoyed about sitting in Los Angeles traffic so decided to build a gigantic tunnel under the city. Then he started selling hats for his tunnel and when the hats sold out, he started selling flamethrowers.

20,000 flamethrowers later, he strapped a Tesla car to a rocket and shot it into space to the soundtrack of Rocket Man by Bowie.

Now, Elon’s next challenge is arguably his most difficult one, parenting and he is off to a flier after announcing that his newborn son is named ‘X Æ A-12 Musk’.

Understandably, the internet is loving this. Here are 8 of the best memes from the Musk naming announcement.

How do I pronounce X Æ A-12?

The first thing that the majority of us will have thought after reading ‘X Æ A-12 Musk’ for the first time was how the hell do we pronounce that?!

Honestly, no one apart from the baby’s new parents actually knows how to say the name – although part of me thinks they aren’t fully confident on the pronunciation either.

Granted this is probably a joke name that’s spun out of control, but there are some fabulous memes that have come from how we pronunciation X Æ A-12 Musk.

Definitely a robot or a superhero!

Many people are pointing out that anyone with that name is either A) a robot or b) a superhero – and we wouldn’t be shocked with either knowing Elon Musk.

With Tesla and Space X, we know that Elon has an affiliation with robotics and tech-savvy lingo, but he wouldn’t call his own son some easter egg related to computer programming would he?

Although this may all be one big joke to Elon…
