“It’s just X, the letter X, and then the Æ is pronounced ‘Ash’ and then A-12 is my contribution,” he said to Joe Rogan when asked about the pronunciation.
Grimes even shared a more detailed breakdown of the name’s meaning on Twitter
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent ?
(A=Archangel, my favorite song)
(⚔️? metal rat)
