Plumbum is the Latin name of the element. The clue is in English, and doesn't specifically ask for the Latin language version of the name, so I'm not sure why it would be accepted.

I didn't know the answer, but I thought, who would be dumb enough to say something like this. After I tried 'Madonna' and did not have the correct answer, I tried to think of Britney Spears but I drew a blank. So I typed 'Beckham.' Bingo.
