NATIONAL BUBBA DAY
National Bubba Day on June 2nd each year recognizes all those we lovingly call Bubba in our lives. The name may come from the way young children try to shorten the word brother.
Often used as an affectionate nickname for a brother, Bubba is also used by close family friends as a term of endearment. Through the years, you may have met many Bubbas or maybe you only know one. No matter how many Bubbas you know, the name is often used as a term for a friend or family member you hold close to your heart or even in high regard.
- Emory Nicholas “Bubba” Church – The American baseball player played in Major League Baseball for five years pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies, Cincinnati Reds (then known as the Redlegs), and the Chicago Cubs.
- Bill “Bubba” Clinton – The American politician was elected as the 42nd president of the United States.
- David “Bubba” Brooks, Jr. – The American saxophonist played professional jazz music across the United States after serving in the United States Army during World War II.
