Grimes pulled a Kylie Jenner on Grimes and changed her 1-year-old daughter’s names.
The surprise announcement that Elon Musk, Twitter CEO, and 35-year-old musician had a second child was made by Grimes in March 2022. “Her full name is Exa Dark Sideræl Musk,” Grimes told Vanity Fair at the time, though she said they refer to her as “Y.” What else did you expect from Grimes and Musk, who also share a two-year-old son named X Æ A-Xii? They call him “X” for short.
Another nickname for their daughter was “Sailor Mars,” which one fan used after Grimes shared a rare pic of the toddler On Twitter, March 23, However, it looks like the little girl’s name has officially been changed to her original nickname…with a few optional variations.
“She’s Y now, or ‘Why?’ or just ‘?’ (But the government won’t recognize that),” Grimes replied to the fan In another tweet. “Curiosity, the eternal question,..and such.” While Grimes could simply be referring to preferred nicknames, the fact that she mentioned the government suggests the change was more official.
Grimes would be well-versed in the history of rejected government names. When their son was born in May 2020, he was initially named X Æ A-12. Later that month, however, she revealed the spelling was changed to “X Æ A-Xii” in accordance with California law, which stipulates that baby names can’t include numbers, symbols, or emoji. Plus, she said the name “looks better” with the Roman numerals.
Grimes doesn’t know what her children call her, but they don’t likely call her mom Grimes. “I don’t identify with that word,” Grimes said in a Vogue Video starting September 2021
“I think having a baby was a big rebirth for me, like, artistically,” she said in the video, per People. “Being a mother feels weird to say. That word doesn’t resonate with me for some reason. Which is also really weird because X, he says ‘Claire,’ but he doesn’t say ‘mama’—which is so…I’m like, ‘How are you…?’ Like, maybe he can sense my distaste for the word mother.” (In case you were wondering where X got Claire from, Grimes’ full name is Claire Elise Boucher.)
Grimes added, “I don’t even know why I have a distaste for [the word] because I respect…I just, I don’t, I can’t identify with it, weirdly.”
