Grimes changes name of her and Elon Musk's daughter from EXA to a 'curiosity' symbol

Grimes confirmed to shortening her daughter's unusual name.

Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, has recently disclosed that she has changed the name of her daughter with tech billionaire Elon Musk. Notably, the 35-year-old Canadian musician and Twitter CEO share two children: son X A-Xii (nicknamed X) and daughter Exa Dark Siderael Musk. (nicknamed Y). Her daughter was born secretly via surrogate and inadvertently revealed in a Vanity Fair interview in March 2022, when the journalist overheard a baby crying in Grimes' home.

On March 24, Grimes tweeted a picture of herself and her daughter, twinning in red, with the caption 'Y C' and a dragon emoji in the center. She also stated that while she and Musk do not normally share images of their daughter in order to protect her privacy, she chose to post this image because the child appeared "fairly unrecognizable" in it.

Previously, the couple had run into trouble over their son's unusual name. Their first son, born in 2020, was initially named X Æ A-12 but was later tweaked to X Æ A-Xii as California law forbids the use of numbers in a legal name.

In a follow-up tweet, she confirmed that her daughter's name had been changed. She said that Exa used to go by Y for short, but she has since decided that it is her new name. She also explained that the child's name is meant to represent ''curiosity, the eternal question, .. and such.''

"She's Y now, or "Why?" or just "?" (But the government won't recognize that). curiosity, the eternal question, .. and such," Grimes wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
