I never heard of Karissa Collins before but oh lordy, those names! Sisters Anjalie and Ayngel must rival Joy-Anna and Johanna, right?

There are so many beautiful, biblical boy (and girl) names out there, but this whole J-theme just really screwed some of them - looking at you, Jinger! 

Although Courtney really tops everything with her children's names.

The thing that annoys me- besides parents compromising what they actually like as a name for a theme- is that they don't even get super interesting with it or varied. I guess they get interesting in a bad way with Jinger but they could have got more adventurous with their names. They have 3 Jos- kids and 5 Jo- kids but no Ju- names (besides Jubilee) when I know Jim Bob liked Julie for a long time. I prefer Julia myself but at least Julie wouldn't have sounded like the others. I would have liked to have seen Job used. I know it's another Jo- name but it sounds different enough. The following aren't all names I personally like, but just would have given some diversity in sounds and at least don't belong to other religions or are Biblical: Jacob (it always surprised me that they didn't use this given the popularity and I would have even overlooked my normal name-nerd annoyance of having a James and Jacob in the same family in this case 😛 ), Jared (also surprised they didn't use this), Joel, Jolie, Joni, Javan, Jasmine, no Jean- names, no Jeff- names like Jeffrey or Jefferson, Jair, Jairus, Jehiel, Judah or Judith or Jude, Jubal, Jael, Jacinta, Jasper, Jarvis, Julian, Jade, Jahleel, Jahzeel, Juliet, Jamin, Jock, June, Juniper, Jaron, Jarrett...

Josie can be short for Josephine or Johannah, and they've already got a Johannah (and a Joy Anna, which sounds like Johannah). Why not Julia, Josephine, Juliette, Jenna, Jamie, Judith, Joyce, or Jane? Jasmine, Jayne, Janine, or Jody? Hell, make something up like Jenibob or Jezipithi. Is Jerusalem a boy or girl name? I would have used that before repeating names. But I also am only a parent to a bird, cat, and many neglected Sims.

I LOVE the name Josephine, but Josiah - Joseph AND Josephine would also be a little too similar in my opinion. Not that the Duggars care though...

I always wondered why they “repeated” so early with Joseph and Josiah; they were born in succession and were only the third and fourth boys.

I think they like Jo names and don’t care how close they are. Joseph, Josiah, Johanna, and Josie all start with the Jo sound and could all be nicknamed Jo. But there only seems to be one Joe and that’s Joseph. They got around the confusion by calling Josiah “Si” and Johanna “Hannie.” Josie is always Josie. I’ve never heard a nickname for her. Besides their “miracle.”

But I will say that although Jedidiah and Jeremiah have similar names, they could have been even closer. I’m glad they didn’t decide to go with Jedidiah and Jebidiah 😕

I don't know if it has been mentioned, but Chad Paine's brother Thomas and his wife Dakota have a 9 month old girl and Dakota is pregnant with #2, which means the kids will be 14 months apart.

Rampant Speculation Based on a Grainy Photo for $500:

Norma Gilligan has a few pics up of Edgar and Rachel's shower this weekend. She posted a pic of "the sisterhood" that includes an odd shot of Campbell standing behind Daisy. Campbell is either arching her back in a really unnecessary and awkward fashion, or she's got a visibly rounded abdomen for other reasons.

It’s funny because Courtney Rogers is due in early June and we’ve known about her pregnancy for months. She posted before the pee stick even dried. Plus Courtney is showing much more and couldn’t have tried to hide it like Jessa. But Courtney is also on #10 so I imagine anyone who is on #10 is going to show early.

Ellie who runs duggarfamilyblog and batesfamilyblog had a baby boy. She hasn't shared the name and might never given that we only know her husband as "Mr. Handsome". The baby is cute but it seems like she had a difficult labor. Her blog is nashvillewife.com.

I'd never read Ellie's personal blog before, and I just took a peak. I'm impressed, mainly because I'm naturally comparing her to the Duggars. Compared to them, she seems intelligent, curious, and thoughtful, and is a skilled writer. Her blog post about visiting Quebec City was well-written, interesting and engaging. I know that she's a conservative Christian and obviously a big supporter of the Duggars, but I hope she has not gotten sucked into IBLP or fundamentalism in general.

I am shocked by how beautiful she is! I guess I just imagined anyone who fan girls the shit out of the Duggars for years would not be beautiful. I guess I pictured her as some mousy, big haired, frumper wearing fundie fan.

I’ve followed Ellie for a long time, and don’t think she was raised with IBLP.  She was homeschooled for part of high school, by her own choice, and graduated from a real university (I don’t remember which one) with a degree in journalism.  As into the Duggars as she is, I don’t think she emulates them, though she has been a stay at home wife since she married, and will continue to stay home now that she’s a mom.  Her husband is a dentist, so he was allowed, maybe even encouraged, to pursue higher education.

I like that she is willing to post comments that are critical of the Duggar and Bates families, as well as comments that are critical of her.  I don’t think she is terrified of the great big world, though she does approach it as a conservative Christian.  I’ve never seen her post anything I thought was hateful or bigoted, and she seems like a sweet young woman.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
