Why does Joe call Claire ‘Lady Jane’ in Outlander?

There are a lot of questions that come up when reading or watching Outlander. Yes, the answers are in the books, but not everyone has read them. And sometimes, it’s easy to overlook elements from the large books. So, questions are normal.

One of the questions is why Joe Abernathy calls Claire “Lady Jane.” That nickname is shortened to “LJ” at times.

The explanation is given in The Fiery Cross. It might be in earlier books, but I honestly can’t remember. See, it’s very easy to forget some details. It’s not been given in the show yet, but there is still time.

The meaning behind Joe’s nickname for Claire in Outlander
Claire states that her nickname is due to her accent. She sounds like she’s just had tea with the Queen and that when she says something, she expects to get what she wants. It’s not actually Joe that starts it, but another doctor in the hospital. The term isn’t supposed to be an endearing one (a bit like Sassenach) but it is when it’s from Joe. He points out that there could be worse nicknames so she should just accept that one.

Of course, those who would have had tea with the queen could be Ladies of the Court. The nickname “Lady Jane” was quickly given.

But why Jane? That’s never really explained. However, I will say as a child growing up in England, I was often called “Lady Jane” by my grandmothers when I did something naughty. I also use the name on my own children.

The name “Lady Jane” likely comes from the British Queen of Nine Days, Lady Jane Grey. I’ll leave you to look into her, but she came between King Edward VI and Queen Mary I.

June 1 has become the day to celebrate one of Scotland’s biggest and most beloved TV shows.

It marks the day in 1991 when Diana Gabaldon first published her novel Outlander, which became the hugely popular book series and Starz show which we all know and love.

This World Outlander Day, fans from all over the world are showing their love for the series which brought Sam Heughan’s rugged Highlander Jamie Fraser onto our screens.

Celebrating the big day, the show posted on its Twitter account: “Lord, ye gave me a rare fanbase and God I loved them well. Happy #WorldOutlanderDay to the most incredible, creative, thoughtful, and passionate fans ever.”

So, in honour of Outlander’s anniversary, we thought we’d share a few interesting things you may not know about the show.

Here’s all we know about Outlander season six, which is in the works now.

1. “This man is grotesque!”
Author Diana Gabaldon’s first reaction to the casting of Sam Heughan as Jaime? “This man is grotesque!” But she quickly changed her mind when she saw his audition tape. “He was gone: it was just Jamie Fraser. He had nailed this particular scene just perfectly. He had the exact right combination of menace, sex, everything,” she said.
2. A sex scene had to be reshot due to Scottish weather
Mild spoiler: An outdoor sex scene between Claire and Jamie had to be reshot as it didn’t have enough nudity. They were filming beside a river in Scotland in November, so the actors were freezing and fully clothed. But producers decided to reshoot as it wasn’t deemed sexy enough, according to Catriona Balfe (Claire). The scene, which is in season four, was eventually refilmed when Scottish temperatures were a little warmer, and both actors got their kit off.

3. It may have been delayed due to Indyref
It is rumoured the release of the very first Outlander series may have been delayed due to the Scottish Independence Referendum in 2014. Although author Diana Gabaldon has denied this, emails leaked by Wikileaks show then UK Prime Minister Cameron met with Sony representatives weeks before to discuss the show’s release date. Lead actor Sam Heughan has been vocal in his support for Scottish Independence.
