As you know, the Jabber Jay being genetically modified as a government spying weapon was made to not be able to self reproduce. Nature found a way around the government intent and the Jabber Jay mated with the mocking bird resulting in the mocking jay.
So I love the symbolism of the Mocking Jay being inherently rebellious to the governments wishes or nefarious plans. Thus, Katniss was labeled the Mocking Jay because of her rebelliousness and personal victory over the Capital and it's tyranny.
Ron Paul is the ultimate Mocking Jay and is a symbol for us all. But, I feel we are all Mocking Jays as we have not fallen in line and we are all in our own ways trying to fight the tyranny and control rolling out before us.
