Celebrity baby naming is far from the most conventional thing out there. On the contrary, more and more celebrities are naming their kids peculiar or strange names., and Grimes is no exception. She recently pulled a Kylie Jenner, hiding her second pregnancy from the rest of the world. What’s more surprising is that the singer recently renamed her now one-year-old daughter to “Y.”
Grimes Changes Daughter’s Name
The musician dropped the bomb on Twitter back in March of last year, announcing that she and Elon Musk have welcomed their second child together in December 2021. At the time, Grimes revealed that the full name of the baby girl is Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, though the parents refer to her as Y. The star has revealed that another nickname they used for their baby girl was Sailor Mars, which was used by a fan when the musician posted a picture of herself and the baby on Twitter in March.
The Y nickname has become official, though, as revealed in a Twitter post. The girl’s current name is now Y, or Why, Grimes tweeted, also mentioning where she got the inspiration for the name. According to the musician’s post, it signifies eternal curiosity.
Her First Kid’s Name Is Just as Peculiar
In case you’ve been living in a cave for the past several years, Grimes has another kid with just as peculiar a name as Y. Her first kid from Elon Musk was born in 2020, and he’s called X Æ A-Xii, or X for short.
Well, regardless of how Grimes names her children, it’s become clear that they don’t (and won’t) call her ‘mom.’ She said in an interview that she doesn’t identify with that word. To her, giving birth has been an incredible artistic rebirth for her, and that’s why she feels weird being called mom.
