Gold!
I can't believe I'm first to post about it.

Any ideas on how to pronounce?

I’ve heard it’s supposed to stand for some merging like Xai Archangel.., frankly it’s weird as hell.

It’s weird but hey it’s not like the kid is ever going to be a normal kid....

I heard Ash Archangel, but it's just dumb all round.

I hope it's a joke to avoid telling the public for a while. How will that poor kid learn to spell his own name? And he'd be constantly correcting people, couldn't ring up for takeaway.. "No, Ash Archangel...AE..."

It translates to "my parents are a*s*holes".

Who cares? It is indulgent or a joke. I'm not buying into the headline grabbing as his company needs the boost. He is an odd man

My guess was Xaia (xeye-ah) but the Guardian's Xai Archangel sounds likely too.

He already has a son called Xavier, seems kinda similar.

He'll do anything to distract from his brainfart the other day that resulted in Tesla's share price dropping 10%...

Yes and the OP fell for it, I can just imagine Elon having a good laugh whether its real or not.

But then he probably doesn’t give a damn about what other people think especially those who clutch their pearls over what overs call their child.

He didn’t get where he is today by ensuring he conformed to small minede suburbia.

What a tryhard

Apparenty they cannot register the name in California as names can only contain the 26 letters of the English alphabet. I wouldn’t put it past Elon Musk to say he will register it in outer space or some weirdness to stay in the news.

I think they're trolling. They're both absolute effwits and rather than just say they didn't want to share the name yet they've decided to post this garbage.

Is his gf called Grimes? Is that first or last?

It's a stage name. She has a perfectly "normal" real name (as is, not made up).

#16 Mister Mum

Posted 07 May 2020 - 07:54 AM

Yeah they're both nuts.  

He's obviously an alien and she looks like some kind of lizard creature in disguise.  I wouldn't be surprised if the kid hatched from an egg :D

Neither.

Claire Elise Boucher Is her real name!

Amy Schumer didn't realise she called her boy Gene, genitals until her mother pointed it out to her. She has since changed Gene's middle name to David.
So anything is possible.
I thought the girlfriend/singers full stage name was Amanda Grimes?

#20 Froyohoho

Posted 07 May 2020 - 08:54 AM

Edit- I obviously need more coffee.

Her stage name is just Grimes.

Pretty sure it's just "Grimes". Her real name is Claire (as someone pointed out above).

Everything I've seen points to it being real and not trolling, but I guess time will tell. Poor kid, if it turns out to be real.

The above sums it up for me.

Also the parents comes across as selfish attention-seeking twits without two brain cells to rub together.

I'm just impressed that the OP managed to work out how to type the AE thing together like that.  I have no idea where to even start in pronouncing a name lake that.

#25 Fourteenyears

Posted 07 May 2020 - 07:35 PM

I can’t think of anywhere that would let them register a non-name like that.   I mean they can use whatever symbols they want, but I doubt that’s going to be on the kid’s passport.

His first five children have perfectly normal names.
