Baby Seewald has a name! Jessa Duggar Seewald and husband Ben Seewald have spent some time thinking about what to name their firstborn. Now, it’s official. Find out the name- and the reasoning behind it- after the break.
Jessa announced the news on Instagram:
Jessa and Ben had been referring to the baby as Quincy ever since they found out they were having a boy. However, he will officially be known as… Spurgeon Elliott Seewald.
They didn’t just use old family names to come up with their son’s name. Spurgeon is for British preacher Charles Spurgeon who was well-known in England and even founded a theological college there which is called Spurgeon College. Elliott is for missionaries Jim and Elizabeth Elliott. They did a lot of work in South America. Spurgeon Elliott certainly isn’t a Hollywood name! Watch Jessa and Ben’s announcement below:
