Grimes and Elon Musk Have Different Pronunciations for Their Baby's Name

Grimes and Elon Musk Have Different Pronunciations for Their Baby's Name
As Grimes and Elon Musk are quickly finding out, naming your child X Æ A-12 presents a series of challenges. In addition to having to constantly defend the decision, there's also the issue of California law preventing the name from being legally allowable. And then there's the issue of how the hell you pronounce it.

In an Instagram reply posted yesterday (May 7), Grimes said that the name was pronounced as it looks — "It's just X, like the letter X. Then A.I. Like how you said the letter A then I."

That's all well and good, but Elon had a different pronunciation when appearing on the Joe Rogan show.  "I mean it's just X, the letter X. And then, the Æ is, like, pronounced 'Ash'... and then, A-12, A-12 is my contribution," he said.

So is the middle name pronounced "A.I." or is it pronounced "Ash"? And what is the keyboard shortcut so we can stop copying and pasting every time we have to write about this damn baby?
