    I have 2 name suggestions
    Jason or chance. They were 2 of my sons names but they are in heaven along with their brother Robert.

    1. Doubt they will use Jason since Jessa's brother's name is Jason. Sorry for your loss!

  7. My daughter Madison was born at 4:26 AM as well. I think a great name would be Paul James!

    1. A Paul after a Spurgeon would kinda be ironic...

  11. I knew it!! Mainly, because of the baby's heart rate. I always heard 140 to 150 is a boy and 160 to 170 is USUALLY a girl. This time proved to be the case again.
    Anyhow, Woo-hoo Jessa and Ben!!!! Congratulations on your precious little guy!!!!๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐ŸŽ‚

    2. Or some people wait to meet their baby first... it's not that uncommon

      Delete
    3. I can think of other reasons, maybe they want to see his little personality emerging before naming - many people do this.

    1. Jessa's brother is Jeremiah, so that would be confusing

    2. Or a sweet seniment.

    3. Repeat names is not a problem; children are often named after parent/ grandparent/ uncle/aunt. Just use different nicknames. I know of a family where 4 cousins were all named after their grandfather.

  77. Congratulations Jessa & Ben on the safe delivery of your son! I just wish you had not contracted with People Magazine for your "exclusive"- both the magazine and the online version are ripe with immodestly dressed people and raunchy articles glorifying celebrity sin...all those things your families are openly and verbally opposed to. It looks like you sold out your values to the highest bidder for a spread.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Congratulations!!!! Your little blessing has arrived! Your family is growing, God Bless You!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Congrats. Can't wait to hear what his name will be.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Congratulation to you all. I was hoping he would be born on the 4th because it's my husband's birthday. I have a name for the little man what about Solomon in keeping with the s names.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Congratulations. You should name him "Stephen James Robert Seewald" after Jim Bob, and keeping with the "S" theme

    ReplyDelete
  102. Will Ben be looking for a job now?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Gabriel(Gabe), Noah, Seth, Solomon, just some ideas

  106. Congratulations! Was Jill midwife to the little baby Seewald?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Wonderful news & congrats- how about Wycliffe?

    ReplyDelete
  108. Will they stick with 'S' ?? Or like the name Spurgeon, name him after another minister?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Congratulations Ben & Jessa!! He is adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Will they never have a name picked out for their babies? Very odd to go for days after the birth with no name. That's usually picked out months in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hey! i have a couple quick name suggestions...
    ONES THAT START WITH S
    Sorren James, (which i guess kinda doesnt really work because you would have Spurgeon and Sorren, but I thought your precious little baby looked like a Sorren, but it is ultimately up to you, but just wanted to point that out.)
    Sean Nathaniel
    Sebashtion James

    NOT STARTING WITH S
    Ben (or Benjamen if you wanna name him after his dad) James
    Chrisopher Michael
    Alexander Joel

    please feel free to mix up middle names with first names. hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  112. He looks like daddy and his big brother looks like like Jessa congratulations

    ReplyDelete
  113. congrats and he is sooo cute! looks like grand-dad duggar in my opinion. how about the name Solomon?

    ReplyDelete
  114. Congrats to both of you and Spurgeon too! May God continue to Bless you all! Looking forward to watching them both grow up!
