In addition to being CEO of Tesla (TSLA) - Get Report, Elon Musk has another title to add to his business card and email signature: "Technoking."

An 8K regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday confirmed that the titles of Musk and CFO Zach Kirkhorn have formally been changed to include “Technoking” for Musk, and “Master of Coin” for Kirkhorn.

Musk is known for his playful and eccentric moves, particularly ones that get the media and public into a frenzy. He and singer Grimes last year officially named their baby X Æ A-12. 

However, in this case there may be more to the title changes than just fun and games, with more nods to Musk's vision of Tesla being a technology disruptor as well as a pioneer in non-traditional and non-fiat digital currencies and payments.
