In latest celebrity news, Elon Musk and Grimes changed the name of their newborn celebrity baby to abide by the California Law. According to UsMagazine.com, the celebrity couple welcomed their son on May 4, and originally named him X Æ A-12. Once the name was revealed, many were quick to point out that according to the California State Constitution, names can only use the 26 alphabetical characters of the English language. The couple then changed their son’s name to X Æ A-Xii. When questioned on social media about the name change, Grimes replied, “Roman numerals looks better.”

In celebrity baby news, Elon Musk and Grimes were forced to slightly change their baby’s name. What are some ways to compromise with your partner about baby names?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Expecting a baby is one of the most joyous feelings in life, but picking the baby’s name can sometimes be a battle. It will be one of the first decisions that you and your partner make together as parents. For some ways to compromise with your partner about baby names, Cupid has some advice below:

1. Hear each other out: In any relationship, it’s so important that you listen to each other. You should both come up with suggestions for the baby’s name and then listen to what you both came up with and why. Although you may be head over heels in love with the names that you picked, you may find that your partner came up with something that you like better.

2. Narrow it down: Before you start throwing names at each other, figure out what kind of names you both are interested in. It can be long or short names, modern or old-fashioned names, or maybe even unisex names. Whatever it is, come to an agreement and go down that path together to look for names.

3. Take your time: Finding the perfect name for your baby won’t be easy, but luckily you have nine long months to narrow it down. Although you’re  eager to have a name for the baby, understand that you may like one name today and then like another a few months later. Sometimes naming your baby after you meet them can be more efficient because the name you picked out beforehand may not match your baby’s look or personality. Understanding that nothing is final until the name is on the birth certificate is key!
