Turns Out Grimes & Elon Musk Cannot Legally Name Newborn Boy X Æ A-12

Not so fast, Elon Musk and Grimes!

Turns out the Tesla CEO and recording artist can't name their newborn son X Æ A-12 after all, according to reports. You might recall the new parents made headlines this week for naming their child probably one of the most unique Hollywood names we've ever seen a celeb give a baby. Grimes broke down the name's meaning on Twitter, but not before Musk corrected a small typo.

All that for nothing though, because they gotta stick to English. Reportedly:

According to a supervisor at the Department of Public Health Vital Records Office in Los Angeles -- where the baby is believed to have been born -- it is against California law to include numbers or symbols in a name.

The law states names must only include the 26 letters of the English alphabet ... obviously, the name Musk and Grimes are claiming for their boy does not meet that criteria.
