Our sixth Beautiful Award winner, and our first fictional name award winner, is James Bond.
Ian Fleming’s creation has of course stood the test of time and later this week, Skyfall, the 23rd Bond movie, is released.
However – in keeping with out recent romp on Britney’s middle name, we asked ourselves does the most famous name in British Spy history have a middle name or names?
Before, checking it out, we stepped in with our own creations-
James Montgomery Bond
James Sinclair Bond
James Sutherland Bond
James Cornelius Bond
James Ismael Bond
James Isaac Jeremiah Bond
James Rosenburg Bond
James London Harvey Bond
James Golden Silver Bond
James Sterling Bond
James Charles Stewart Bond
James Rupert Salamander Bond
James T. Simon Bond
What do you think? Which are your favourites? What middle names can you come up with?
So did Ian Fleming bless our beloved character with a middle name?
Most fans and commentators believe he didn’t, but in 2006, the Daily Telegragh made the following assertion-
“In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1963), Bond is being held in a raffia-work cage suspended over a pool of piranha fish while the villain, Dr Peevish, taunts him by saying “Herbert, Herbert, Herbert” over and over again”.
So there you have it – Bond, James Herbert Bond.
