    Elon Musk is either bad at typing, bad at cracking jokes or terrible at choosing baby names after announcing that his newborn son with Grimes will be called “X Æ A-12.”

    The eccentric billionaire announced last week that he would “own no house” and lost billions of dollars by tweeting about Tesla’s stock, so it could really be any combination of those possibilities at this point.

    And no, he didn’t confuse the baby with a SpaceX rocket.

    Musk tweeted the first photos of his new baby boy late Monday and early Tuesday after his Canadian girlfriend (real name Claire Elise Boucher) gave birth in California.

    “Mom and baby all good,” Musk tweeted late on Monday, before adding that the child is a boy.

    His Twitter followers clamoured for the name so Musk seemingly provided it: “X Æ A-12 Musk.”

    He did not explain how to pronounce it, nor did he offer shortcuts for typing that “Æ” into your keyboard. You’re just going to have to copy and paste it.

    He then shared a photo of the child with tattoos photoshopped onto his face.

    “Never too young for some ink haha,” he wrote.

    I'm really convinced that this man is insane and I genuinely am concerned for the safety of that baby.

    I doubt the baby will be in Elon's hands that much, I'd guess Clare will be doing the bulk of parenting. The kid is gonna need a strong male influence though - I like Grimes but she does have 'snowflake' leanings.

    just for clarity's sake:
    Grimes broke down the significance of each letter of the bizarre name on Twitter on Tuesday night, explaining that X stands for "the unknown variable," Æ stands for "my elven spelling of Ai," and A-12 is the "precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft)."
