Elon Musk just updated his baby's name!

A few weeks after Elon Musk and Grimes revealed their baby's confusing name, the couple has apparently altered the unique moniker. In an Instagram comment, a fan asked Grimes if the couple changed the name of their newborn son due to California laws that require only alphabetical letters.

"Did you change the baby name because of Californian laws ? What is the baby's new name?" the fan wrote on Grime's latest Instagram photo.

"X Æ A-Xii," she replied, revealing the slight alteration to the end of the baby's name, changing the "12" to Roman numerals.

In reply to another commenter, Grimes simply wrote that Roman numerals look better.
