Elon Musk firstborn son: Nevada Alexander Musk

Nevada Alexander Musk, Elon Musk’s first child, was born in 2002.

Tragically, at the age of just 10 weeks, baby Nevada died of SIDS.

Author Justine Wilson, Nevada’s mother, wrote an article for Marie Claire in 2010 on the tragic loss.

Griffin and Vivian Musk

Elon Musk and his ex-wife Justine Wilson utilised IVF to have more children after the tragic death of their first child.

Griffin Musk and his twin Vivian were then born in April 2004. They are 19 years old now.

One of the twins, Vivian, submitted a court request to alter her name and gender at the age of 18, asking for the issuing of a new birth certificate reflecting both of these changes as well as acknowledgement of her gender as female.

She wanted to drop her father’s last name and take her mother’s in its place.

The triplets: Kai, Saxon and Damian Musk

Kai, Saxon, and Damian Musk were born in January 2006 to Elon Musk’s then-wife, Canadian novelist Justine Wilson. This year, the triplets turned 17.

Elon and Wilson have shied away from lengthy public discussions of the triplets, but Wilson acknowledged in a 2017 TedTalk that the trio was also conceived via IVF.

X Æ A-Xii now originally X Æ A-12

On May 4, 2020, Elon Musk and his on-again, off-again love interest Grimes had their first child.

X Æ A-12 was the original name given to their kid; it was later changed it to X Æ A-Xii.

The Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance plane from the CIA served as inspiration for part of the name.

This is what the name means and resembles:

X, the unknown variable ⚔️

Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)

A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favourite aircraft). No weapons, no defences, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent.

Elon Musk welcomed Twins in 2021

In November 2021, Elon Musk and Shivon Zilis, director of operations and special projects at Neuralink, welcomed twins.

The twins’ names and genders have not been made public.

Musk and Zilis allegedly did submit a petition to have the twins’ names changed so that they would “have their father’s last name and incorporate their mother’s last name as part of their middle name.”

In May 2022, a judge in Austin, Texas, authorised it.
