In what ways could Elon Musk's son have difficulties due to his name?

Asked by Aster (19874points) 1 month ago

Musk announced Monday that he and his girlfriend, singer Grimes, had welcomed a baby son and given it a name that he broke down how to correctly pronounce during an interview with podcast host Joe Rogan this week. He identified the second character as “ash” — saying it was pronounced X-Ash-A-12.

This is an old story from May. And they had to change the baby’s name because in California you can only use the 26 letters of the Alphabet.

The child would also have problems getting a social security card, airplane reservations, and a drivers license, because they don’t accept odd characters.

@zenvelo one has to think that Musk did this fully aware of the consequences of naming his kid that odd name.

His problem, not mine.

I wouldn’t name a girl “Karen” in 2020…

The artist formerly known as Prince did ok with a very not-in-“the”-alphabet symbol for a name. Of course, he also had fame and fortune going for him, but so will the son of Elon Musk.
