Jessa and Ben Seewald Reveal Their Newborn Son's Unique Name

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and her husband Ben have finally come up with a name for their newborn son -- and they might have taken the cake for most unusual celebrity baby name this year.

In a video posted to the Duggar Family YouTube channel on Wednesday, Jessa and Ben revealed that they've named their baby boy, Spurgeon Elliot Seewald.

Jessa explained that their baby's nickname "has been Quincy, since we first found out we were pregnant." However, instead of naming him Quincy, they've gone with Spurgeon.

As Ben explains, the name comes from the 19th-century theologian, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, whose writing have had a great deal of influence on the couple.

"He had a big impact on our lives," Ben shared in the video. "His writings and his sermons and books are still around today."

As for the middle name Elliot, the Seewalds chose the moniker to honor Jim and Elisabeth Elliot, husband and wife missionaries.

Jim was killed in 1956, during his missionary trip to Ecuador, by members of the native Amazonian tribe, to which they had come to spread the gospel.

Elisabeth then spent years as a missionary to the tribe responsible for her husband's death before returning to America and becoming a respected and prolific religious author. Elisabeth passed away in June at the age of 88.

In a nutshell, Spurgeon Elliot was chosen to honor of the religious figures that have directed the course of Jessa and Ben's spiritual lives.

No. 19 caught Michelle Duggar by surprise. The 42-year-old mom of 18 noticed that she wasn't losing weight, even though she and husband Jim Bob were on Weight Watchers, and her youngest child, 8-month-old Jordyn-Grace, was fussing while nursing. In the past, she found a fussy infant meant a change in breast milk that came with pregnancy. (AP Photo/ Beth Hall, File)
