The baby was due on Monday, but on Tuesday Elon Musk and his girlfriend Grimes shared pictures of their new born baby.
A twitter user asked Elon Musk if he could share a picture of his newborn baby and that it would break the internet. He then sent out a picture of him holding his baby boy.

When people asked him what the boy’s name was, Elon tweeted out a cryptic reply

So what does this name mean? Well, the same twitter user who asked for a picture of his child decoded each of the symbols and this was what she came up with:
This might be the answer because Elon responded by liking the post.
The mother, Grimes, broke it down for all of us:
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️
•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)

Somehow, Grimes breaking down the name made me more confused.
Congratulations Musk family!
