Not even a real name I know but any thoughts when used as a middle name for a girl born around the Jubilee celebrations?

Badgerina Sun 13-May-12 09:19:12

Only if you REALLY REALLY REALLY love the Queen or are an X-Men fan.

ripsishere Sun 13-May-12 09:22:01

grin I suppose it's OK, nobody ever uses their middle names.
I thought I may use Muscat for DD. Sense prevailed.

McKayz Sun 13-May-12 09:23:26

No it's strange. We decided against Elizabeth due to DD being due near the Jubilee celebrations and everyone we spoke to thought it was stupid.

As a massive X-Men fan..I'd say yes. To do with the Jubilee, nah.

BadNails Sun 13-May-12 09:28:12

I thought X-Men too. Which would be fine but she's a bit of a crap character.

How about Queenie instead
Jubilee is a line on the tube

CaptainHetty Sun 13-May-12 09:33:04

X-Men yes, Queen's Jubilee no.

I actually quite like it as a middle name.

Wasn't that what the duggars called their 21st kid ????

As a middle name? Just about OK if 'hidden' amongst others.

Was going to come onto say that Jubilee would be Lovely Jubly.

I think it's fine as a mn

Regina might be a bit more subtle wink

Jubilee is a frozen drink, one of those plastic cup things with a lid you pierce with a straw.

Regina, cool.

Snusmumriken Sun 13-May-12 18:23:32

Only if your surname is Line.

PestoPenguin Sun 13-May-12 18:56:23

Er, no

Geranium3 Sun 13-May-12 19:03:07

quite cute for a special year but only for a middle name

Whoopydofoxpoo Sun 13-May-12 19:18:26

But how about celebrating the Olympics as well and calling her ' Jubilympica '

Whoopydofoxpoo Sun 13-May-12 19:18:41

grin

LackaDAILYcarb Sun 13-May-12 19:21:19

Just....no!

Diamond might work though wink

Whoopydofoxpoo Sun 13-May-12 19:22:35

What about just 'Elizabeth' ?

I used to have a My Little Pony called Jubilee. [nostalgic]

Don't like it as a name for a child though, sorry. Someone suggested Regina though, which is nice and subtle.

AThingInYourLife Sun 13-May-12 19:32:21

Jubilympica! grin

I might call my baby that.

Whoopy - any way you could work Titanic into that too?

Frontpaw Sun 13-May-12 19:33:40

Makes me think of Cherries Jubilee

Terrible.

And Regina is even worse imho.

Badgerina Sun 13-May-12 19:55:54

Was just speaking to my dad about this today, apparently, my great, great, great grandfather (a farmer) had a horse called Jubilee, born on Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1894. He went on to become a war horse during WW1, and died bravely in battle on the fields of Flanders. Fancy that.
