I'm going guess if it is a girl her name will be Miriam Grace. It would go well with Henry, old fashion and it's biblical.

I'd go with Piper Lauren. more often then not a fundy first daughter gets her mother's middle name and they go with people they talk about a lot and I know they talk about that Piper guy a lot. I also think they would leave Miriam for an M child.

If they do that child will be Piper Halliwell in my head, no matter what her middle name.

We are not sure it's a girl I hope!

I am voting for RIchard Watson (Seewald)  -   theologian from the 1700's

When the baby is born the thread title needs to say Threewald is here. I forget who coined that term but I love it so much.

no no clue what the next four granduggars will be I'm leaning towards boy for Jessa we know they know but aren't saying per usual. Austin and joy will probably wait until birth again, Anna and Kendra will find out and announce before baby is born. it would be crazy if they were all boys though that would make 

13 boys and only three girls.

I think there is a typo in the new title— it’s Seewald with a double E.

I'm super confused as to why they didn't just name Spurgeon Charles. But I guess if they did, people wouldn't ask about the name and they wouldn't be able to explain the 'special meaning'.

I'm leaning toward boy for Threewald… and I see a member of Jim Elliot's ill-fated mission trip was named Theophilus. Theophilus Seewald? :think:

At least Theophilus ( how is that pronounced?) can be shortened to Theo which is a handsome stand alone name. When Jessa calls Spurgeon ' Spurgie' it always sounds rude ( IMO).

I don't know why, but I feel an Eleanor coming for them. Or Clementine. Something super old and hipsterish.  I can't come up with anything for a boy though...

Theophilus means “God-lover” and was also who the books of Luke and Acts were originally written to (as letters), so it would certainly appeal to a Duggar.

I think it was the blatant stealing of Henry that made me think, "fine. You wanna use all the good names, here's the rest, name thief." I pouted when she named that cute little dude Henry, mostly because I was pregnant, and that name was mine dammit! ( She turned out to be female, so I am okay. Lmao)

It also sounds like a sexually transmitted disease so it appeals to my 12 year old maturity level.

so far I've been uber upset by Henry and a little miffed by Meredith. the rest I haven't really cared about. though I do like Felicity it's never really been on my list. so far no bates names except maybe Willow have came close to my list. (Okay that's a lie I love Charles but he's called Carson so I can let that one go. LOL)

I'm not going to say which one, but one of the families named their son the exact same name I named mine two weeks earlier, and I made a face about it... okay it was Spurgeon. ( Not really)

My daughter’s name is Piper and we often meet other kids with that name at the park, library, etc. So since it seems like it’s pretty trendy now I don’t know if they’d want to use it. It’s not unique like Spurgeon or Wilberforce. (Or maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part. I certainly hope no one I meet thinks I named my daughter after John Piper!)

Dennis Miller did that to me.  I still haven't forgiven him.

I love the name Piper ....I can't imagine most people would have any idea of the fundy connotation.

with the Seewalds you never know where they are going to go I mean they did use Henry so they have nothing against popular names but no I don't think anyone would ever think you named your child after that man.

Yep. First and middle. It's not really spurgeon but I named my son after my father, and not two weeks later, a duggar grandchild was born and gifted with this great name, and I turned into a salty shrew for no reason over it.

I know Henry is popular but I was just thinking of the names they used that were named after people.  Maybe someone will let them know that Piper is a character name on Charmed and Orange is the New Black lol.

I guess I am just a special kind of nerd because Piper to me reminds me of a Piper Cub airplane.

^^ I see a future arm wrestle between Ben and pilot JD over who gets to use this name for their first daughter.

      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.
