Elon Musk Explains How to Pronounce Son X Æ A-12's Name, Says Grimes 'Mostly Came Up' with the Idea
While the name of their new baby boy, X Æ A-12, is technically legal, a family law attorney recently told PEOPLE that it won't be accepted by the state of California as a valid moniker.
"In California, you can only use the '26 characters' of the English language in your baby name," David Glass said Wednesday. "Thus, you can't have numbers, Roman numerals, accents, umlauts or other symbols or emojis. Although an apostrophe, for a name like 'O'Connor,' is acceptable."
Glass said that if X Æ A-12's birth certificate is submitted as-is, it is sure to be rejected and Grimes and Musk will be asked to re-submit it.
"They have an opportunity to appeal the rejection of the birth certificate application but it's unlikely that it will be granted because, again, California … has been struggling with using symbols," Glass added.
