Just whacking this in there as a suggestion for anybody birthing atm.

My great-grandmother was born in Queen Victoria's Golden jubilee year. Her name?

Amelia (fine)

Emma (yes, very nice)

Jubilee (wtf)

Victoria (overkill)

She reacted against this and called her dds Joan and Vera. No middle names.

But still it's out there as a possible.....grin

Jubilee is a lovely name <preen>.

PrunellaDeVille Fri 01-Jun-12 21:06:07

there's been quite a bit of it through history, this is very appropriate
i particularly enjoy Mr Jubilee Waterloo

I think Jubilee would be a fantastic middle name!

nearlymumofone Fri 01-Jun-12 22:47:42

I kinda like Elizabeth- but not if it's going to be in the top 10 this year. Is that a given do you think?

Northernlurker Fri 01-Jun-12 23:01:13

I possibly should mention that my middle name is Elizabeth - want to guess the year I was born?

SPB - NO announcements here. I've shut up shop on babies.

A friend of mine once had an African boyfriend whose name was Jubilee.

I was wondering if anyone would resurrect Queenie.

I do actually know someone with the middle name Jubilee. I
And her first name is even stranger, seriously! confused Now that I know her well and she is completely lovely, she suits her name and I'm used to it.

wildstrawberryplace Sat 02-Jun-12 17:26:31

Is her first name Cherries? wink

DottieRose Sat 02-Jun-12 17:38:32

Lovely name

Not cherries that would be less odd

There was a girl in my class at school called Queen Elizabeth. She wasn't born in a jubilee year or anything.

I was going to say it's the hormones talking but as you're not pregnant,
