Well, her real name is Victoria. What an unusual nickname, I've never heard it before. I really like it, it really suits her!
Anyone else heard of this?

She should be a professor and live in Cluedo Land!

HollowTalk Tue 24-Apr-18 15:04:58

Oh sorry, I thought you meant it was her surname.

TheSpottedZebra Tue 24-Apr-18 15:06:27

Yes. It's not that uncommon.

Well - it is in the sense that the ones I've met are all on the posher side...

I know two Plums, both under 10 and it’s not short for anything. Then there’s Plum Sykes of course!

Yes, Her name is Victoria, but nobody call her that! They call her Plum! I think it's really sweet, it suits her actually.
No, it's not the same one Curls! There obviously must be a few around!

MollyH1 Tue 24-Apr-18 15:38:26

She was born before Victoria Plum (bathroom company), she was saying that she hates they have dropped the 'b' (it used to be Victoria Plumb) as she gets that bathrooms stuff a lot!

I think we've had this exact thread a little while ago..

Oh I knew a Plum (also Victoria) when I was a child (well I met her a few times - she was neighbour to my cousins) My Plum would be probably around sixty by now.

I know a (Victoria) Plum. Was it not a character from something in the 80s?

MrsUnderwood Tue 24-Apr-18 16:36:22

It makes me think of nadgers.
