On a lighter note: Naming suggestions for Elon’s twins

by | Jul 30, 2022 | On a Lighter Note

The very fertile SpaceX/Telsa head Elon Musk is apparently doing his best to populate the Earth with his progeny, with new twins adding to his brood (he has 10 surviving children by three different women and a surrogate mother). We are wondering, at this point, what the famously energetic and enthusiastic Elon has for breakfast?

Of course, when it comes to naming his children Musk does not always stick to conventional names. One of his kids is famously named after the A-12 military jet (his name is X AE A-XII). Thus, if Elon does go down the aircraft naming route again for his new twins, may we again suggest Sopwith Camel and Gloster Gamecock (pictured)?

Or perhaps he should switch to Mars spacecraft names? How about Viking and Mariner?

Elon Musk’s most recent child before the new twins (his second set) does have a space-related name: Exa Dark Sideræl Musk. Just as her brother X AE A-XII is now called “X” for short, she is now reportedly known as “Y”.

Thankfully, there are lots of other aircraft and spacecraft names to choose from, especially if Elon’s child production line continues apace. And this would not be surprising. Everywhere the genius multi-billionaire goes, there are frequently women who shout to let him know they want to have his baby. Surprisingly, this even happens at space conferences which generally have a more reserved crowd. You could say that standards are definitely dropping in the space community.

Despite this, while your corpulent carcass of a correspondent might look five months’ pregnant, he can certainly confirm that it is definitely not Elon’s. McDonalds, Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken would be closer to the mark. Mind you, any resulting issue may yet be named after Elon.
