Grimes and Elon Musk had their first baby earlier this month, and sparked meme after meme when they announced that the baby’s name was X Æ A-12.

Now, the couple have been forced to change the baby’s name because California law prevents parents from naming children with numbers and symbols. TMZ reveals that the couple have changed X Æ A-12’s name to X Æ A-Xii to cosplay with the law.
“Roman numerals. Looks better tbh,” Grimes says on Instagram.
Any children born in California have to be named with only the 26 letters of the alphabet, and the only symbols that can be used are dashes and apostrophes.
