If ever there were two people on the planet who just need to tone it down generally, it's Elon Musk and Grimes.
For one, we are not living in the cyberpunk dystopia that they seem to exist in. Nobody else is running around here naming their child after paragons of American military imperialism, nor does anyone even give a single, solitary f*ck how to pronounce Æ either.

Yet, because we're all trapped indoors and unable to get away from all of this, Elon Musk explained to his legions of weird nerd fans how to pronounce his child's name. Musk talked through it all on - where else - the Joe Rogan Experience.
"First of all, my partner is the one who, mostly, actually came up with the name," Musk began, hurling Grimes right underneath the bus with that one. "I mean it's just X, the letter X," the
parasite billionaire elaborated.
"And then the AE is like pronounced 'ash'... yeah... and then A-12 is my contribution." So, you put that all together and you get X-Ash-A12.
Great. Good to know.
Of course, the name was rejected by state government authorities in California as it cannot accept the Æ symbol as legitimate. You just know right well that that kid is going to grow up to either be a chartered accountant or the first galactic overlord.
There is literally no in-between with a name like that. By the way, it's worth pointing out that Grimes' real name is Claire and Elon is a common Israeli name - so this name is just projection for both of them.
