  24. Congratulations on the birth of Marcus. It is a good day for a birthday. I know as it is also my birthday and Jerry Mathers ( the Beaver-for those who remember "Leave it to Beaver"). Jerry and I are the same age and both born In Iowa. Also I have a great niece born on my birthday! Enjoy your latest little blessing, Josh and Anna.

  25. I find it interesting that they would name their son after a pagan playboy, who was known as the New Dionysus because of his fondness for drink and partying.

    1. Lauren H They probly don't know that. I don't think the first thing meantioned in baby books or online name sites are the unsavory characters of the world with the same name. Either way that's a pretty interesting tidbit.

    2. I agree,, and am glad someone pointed this out. Names are very iimportant. A godly family should be granting godly names, not glorifying Rome.

    3. SERIOUSLY?????? Bahahahahahahahahahahaha! Father God is so much more loving, generous, Graceful, kind and grown-up than he is evidently being given credit for.
      Come on-get a grip. As long as this precious child grows up to love the Lord-who CARES what they name him!!

  35. Wow! Marcus Anthony! After Roman politician Mark Antony and Cleopatra's lover, I assume. Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh yay!! I'm so excited!! A new Duggar baby!! But... Marc Anthony? Really? I guess they don't realize who that is. But M.A.D.? They had to have seen that one. Idk questionable name imho.

    He is huge, I hope Anna didnt suffer too much with a painful birth again like she has before. A 9 lb 3oz baby is no joke.

    A guess they are happy to "compare" baby boys size with David Waller since Josh and David, in my opinion, don't really like each other. They try to say its playful competition, but it seem more to it underneath the playing up to the camers.

  43. Congratulations to everyone...May God continue to bless you and watch over your family each and everyday. The more the merrier!!!!

  44. CAN YOU PUT A TEMPORARY PICTURE OF MARCUS ON THE BLOG HEADER TOP PAGE?
    THANKS!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I adore the name Marcus, it is the name of my youngest child (3yr), so it definitely wins my approval ( Not that you need it). Congratulations, and God bless the Duggar family :).

    ReplyDelete
  46. Congratulations to the entire Duggar family on the birth of Marcus. My goodness, Josh and Anna's babies are getting bigger! Must be the God-given life they lead.

    ReplyDelete
  47. What a blessing! Such a nice healthy size! Two of my boys were 9lb. 2 oz. They seem so healthy at that size, I actually prefer it. :)
    Many congrats to the whole family on this blessing from God!

  48. So, Michelle was 21 when she had Josh, she was 23 when she had twins, 24 - when she had Jill (4 kids). Anna at almost 25 is behind :), they need to have the 4th child right after Marcus!
    And 9 lbs baby is huge! Hope Anna had a good delivery. Seems like there were no problems and there was no C-section, so she had him naturally. But 9 lbs baby! I wonder how they handle tearing during the delivery at some birth center, do they have nurses to put on stitches? In any case, congratulations!
    And Marcus looks just like Mackynzie when she was born1

  49. LOVE the name!! He is so precious! Congrats to Josh and Anna on their new addition!! :) May God richly bless your family!

  50. Did Anna have a home birth??

    ReplyDelete
  51. congratulation!
    But please dont do it for the camera, do it for yourselves, raising a lot of children is no easy task.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Congrats Josh and Anna! We are celebrating a new baby too!

  53. How precious! He was born on our 4 year anniversary! :)

  54. The name they chose *is* a little surprising, however both Josh and Anna were raised very sheltered - no major media influences, oblivious to much pop culture. Yes, they could have realized the significance of the name if they Googled it but maybe they didn't think of that. I wouldn't criticize them - for whatever reason, they chose that name specially for their son and I'm sure it wasn't "after" the Marc Antony that everyone is thinking! :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I agree that Marcus is very out of character and matthew would of been my guess as well, but its what they wanted.I def think they dont know who mark anthony is...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Josh and Anna both have internet now, and I'm sure if they browsed names, Mark Anthony would come up :).

    ReplyDelete
  57. Even somebody sheltered should know who Mark Anthony (or Marcus Antonius) is, as he is a major figure in history.

    That Josh and Anna may not know this speaks a great deal about their education, which in turn makes me concerned with how they will fair with Josh working in DC.

    I am quite happy for them, little Marcus is beautiful, but still, the name really surprises me.

  60. Cool!! I fell in love with this family as mine has 7 children!!! Love u guys and God Bless!!!!

  61. You people are hilarious. Good grief, just because there's an unsavory "Marcus Anthony" in history, no one should be named that?! If you follow that logic, you'll run out of names pretty quickly, with the exception of Yeshua/Jesus. Marcus Anthony is a cute name for a cute little boy.
