I got to wondering what the Duggars' names would have been had they all been born a century earlier, and this is the result! I feel honour-bound to tell you all that 'Victorian Duggars' isn't really the most accurate title, but 'Interwar-era Duggars' didn't have quite the same ring to it. I used the SSA baby names data to find the ranks for their first and middle names, and then I just found the names that sat at those ranks exactly a hundred years before they were born. This was challenging for some names where I had to dig deep into the text files of the data to find their rankings, but I was dedicated to bringing you a few minutes of mild entertainment this afternoon. Jim Bob and Michelle were born before the SSA data collection began. I just used the 1880 data for them. Some of the names were challenging, like Jinger - there were only six girls named Jinger born in 1993, and her ranking just doesn't match up with any from 1893 (there were far more names given in 1993 than in 1893). So I looked back at all the names in the corresponding year that were only given to six girls, and choose the last one beginning with the same letter. I decided to go with the same letter, because otherwise every name I had to do this for would've begun with Z. Jinger, Milagro, Martyn, Johannah (there were no corresponding J names so I chose the closest letter), and Mackynzie all fell into this category. Spurgeon was not listed at all, so I choose the lowest ranked boy's name beginning with S for 1915. Which happened to be, well... you'll see. And if you would believe it, Wilberforce didn't make the list for 2017, either! So same deal, lowest ranked boy's name for 1917 beginning with W. And for the younger "Martyn", lowest ranked named beginning with M for 1918. The data for 2018 has not been released yet, so I cheated just a little and used 2017 data for Gideon, Garrett and Felicity but still compared it to the 1918 rankings. Without further ado...

June 8th, 1918 Aileen and Richard Forsyth's children: 1. Hyman Murtha Forsyth, b. February 23rd, 1918. Um, so yeah. You guys thought Spurgeon was bad? At least he's not A Boy Named Sue Seewald. And poor little Millard Dillard. I think Hyman Murtha Forsyth might take the cake, though. Wow. Also can't get over the fact that Kendra's old school name is Rosie Ivy. It fits, somehow.
At some point in time, someone had to be the one responsible for giving everything a name. Things like chairs, tables, doors, etc. Most of these are fine and unquestionable. But who was the wise guy who thought a good name for a fruit might be, say, a kumquat? WTF!!!
"Chryateeve" names of course aren't limited to fundie spawn, but some of them have come up with some pretty unusual monikers for their blessings. So just for fun: Which are your favourites? Any hidden guilty affection for Spurgeon, Sauntina, Jinger, Charissa, Alatheia, Jevenn, Jodavid or little Davia? Come on, you can say it, we're all friends here ;-) I'll go first. "Nurie" (crownprincess of the Rodriguii RV) has really grown on me, not that I'd ever use it for a child, but I actually do really like the name, even if sharing taste with Queen JIll in anything really bugs me
I suggest an alphabet theme, since many little Duggars/QFs are likely to produce prolifically. I'll start it off with: A is for Abigail or Andrew B is for Beatrice or Benjamin C is for Catherine or Christopher The goal is to reach 26.
