WATCH: The New Duggar Baby Has Been Dubbed with a Most Unique Name
What’s in a name?
Jessa Duggar Seewald and Ben Seewald of the late 19 Kids and Counting announced the unique name of their first child in a video on their website. Now, we’ve met Apple Martin, Pilot Inspektor, and Jermajesty Jackson, so surely no choice of these reality star parents could faze us …right?
Their baby’s name is Spurgeon. Spurgeon Elliot Seewald, named after Charles Spurgeon, a prolific British preacher from the 19th century who has had a large impact on the couple’s life. His middle name, Elliot, is in honor of the late missionaries Jim and Elisabeth Elliot who worked in South America.
Spurgeon was born on Nov. 5, weighing in at 9 lbs. 11 oz. and measuring 21 1/2 inches long. Congratulations to the new parents!
