The “Oblivion” singer explained the inspiration behind the moniker the following day via Twitter. “X, the unknown variable,” the new mom wrote at the time. “Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence). A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent + (A = Archangel, my favorite song) (metal rat).”

The Canadian star added, “I think it sounds like the name of the main character in the story. I hope he vibes with that. OK, going back into the pain/ beauty reverie for [some] time, just came on to add my thoughts. Peace to all.”

When Musk replied, “SR-71, but yes,” Grimes fired back, “I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b [sic] forgiven but, damnit. That was meant to be profound.”

The engineer, who also shares twins, Xavier and Griffin, and triplets, Damian, Kai and Saxon, with his ex-wife Justine Musk, cringed while trying to explain X Æ A-12’s pronunciation to Joe Rogan on Thursday, May 7, admitting, “My partner is the one who, mostly, actually came up with the name.”
