USA Today, UsMagazine.com and EW.com reported Grimes confirmed the alteration in the comments of an Instagram post Sunday.

"Roman numerals. Looks better tbh," Grimes said when asked if she and her partner changed their baby's name due to a California law that wouldn't allow a numeral.

Grimes explained in an earlier post what the name means.

"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," she wrote.
