Ever since Grimes and Elon Musk welcomed their son into the world on May 4, all we can wonder is if they're trolling us with his bizarre name, X Æ A-12 (later tweaked to X Æ A-Xii). On Tuesday (June 16), TMZ got their hands on the baby's birth certificate, and sure enough his legal name is X Æ A-Xii (or "Little X" for short).

See the birth certificate below.

Though his name is now officially official, X Æ A-Xii's parents don't seem to be on the same page about how to pronounce his name. "It's just X, the letter x, and then the Æ is pronounced Ash." the Tesla tycoon explained during The Joe Rogan Experience. He went on to reveal that A-19 is a tribute to the Archangel 12, the "precursor to SR-71, the coolest plane ever."

However, Grimes had a much different explanation. "It’s just X, like the letter X. Then A.I. Like how you said the letter A then I,' she recently explained on Instagram.

Aside from becoming a new mom, Grimes also recently launched an art exhibit called Selling Out, where she'll be selling a literal piece of her soul.
