Elon Musk and Grimes have changed their baby's name

Elon Musk and Grimes have changed their baby's name.

The infant formerly known as X Æ A-12 is now called X Æ A-Xii.

Ever the Meme Lord, Grimes replied to the user saying, "Roman numerals. Looks better tbh".

In his latest appearance on Joe Rogan's podcast, Elon Musk said that the name was masterminded by Grimes.
