Jinger 55: Picking Names Just to Sound Grand


Recommended Posts

No. To them Eve probably represents men’s downfall and women’s innate weakness and prone to sinning Plus the fact a man did not lead his wife and So got them get out of paradise. 
 

Seems to me Young modern modest Fundie mothers are going for cutesy trendy names with or without Kre8tive spellings instead of biblical while Anna, Bethany, Hannah And the like were in style 25 or 30 years ago. I prefer the latter personally.

This is the piece that infuriates me most about the buddy system. No teen sister should have to sacrifice her own sleep because her mom can't stop having babies. I absolutely hated night feedings, but

It’s humbling to hear that Jeremy says ‘we’re human beings, we have the exact same problems you have’. Who the hell do they think they are?!  How reassuring for us plebs that the failed footballer t

“Because we’re so in the public eye … [suitors would come] with the wrong intentions of like, ‘Oh, I want to be on TV,’” Jinger said.   Lol, Jinger. Have you actually met Jeremy fame-whore V

Jinger was promoting Compassion International in her stories this morning.  As a compassion sponsor of two girls, it was nice to see her using her influence for something helpful instead of shilling the usual nonsense.

Today's bible readings (if you're Catholic) have this bit from Genesis:

"The man called his wife Eve,
   because she became the mother of all the living."

Which makes me think .... surely Eve is the most quiverfull name???

Zoe(y) Is  Greek for Eve so we have a Bates baby with the most quiverfull name sort of lol

They have put information about the non profits they have decided the hats and candles will contribute to- one is Jeremy’s mum’s organisation Swan and the other is the Compassion for children non profit Jinger is promoting. It runs a child sponsorship scheme with a heavy emphasis on Christian ‘training’. Still, I’m glad Mediccorp isn’t up there!

Um - I'm a Compassion sponsor of two girls - one in Bolivia and and one in Tanzania.  I personally prefer not to call it a scheme (also has a good rating on Charity Navigator).

I think Compassion for Children is a legitimate organization.

I’m not doubting Compassion’s legitimacy- I’d never heard of it before and read about it on its own website. In the past I sponsored a child via Action Aid so Compassion is quite a different concept.

@clueliss, we help a family we know in Biharamulo with school expenses for their daughter.  We do this privately and not through any organization.  Biharamulo is up in northwestern Tanzania west of Lake Victoria.

I had another thought about Eh-van-juh-line: I think many of us assumed that Jeremy would be behind this because of his pompousness, but maybe this is all Jinger? She's got a trashy, made-up name so I can understand her going in another direction with her kids. I know plenty of people who were Jennifers married to Matts who names their kids Ziggy or Delta so that their name would make them stand out. I similarly know of Isises and Daytonas who named their kids Jane or Adam because they found their unusual names embarrassing and limiting. Out of all the Duggars, bar Jimbob, Jinger has the name that prompts you to start humming Cotton Eye Joe. It makes sense to me she would choose a name she thinks screams CLASSY!

This is a really great point, and I agree. But it also made me laugh because my aunt is named Jennifer and she married a guy named Matt! (They don’t have any kids though.)

Maybe it's just cultural or regional, but to me "Evy Jo" kind of cancels out the grandiosity  of Evangeline.

I was thinking this too. Felicity, a name I consider to be rather old fashioned and grand, becoming Lissy is cute and uncommon. Evangelize, another name I consider to be old fashioned and grand, becoming “Evy Jo” just kind of seems... flat to me. It’s a cute name sure, but it doesn’t strike me the same way Felicity/Lissy does, despite being a name style I like. I tend to like old fashioned names, the names at the top of my list for my someday far in the future kid is Hershel for a boy and Florence for a girl, felicity and Evangeline totally fit that same theme but I find Evy Jo to kind of take away from it, but it’s not my kid so whatever I guess.

I have read everything everyone said and I still can't wrap my head around it. If they are going to center their whole lives around creating a "brand," they need to rethink this one. Unless they're fine with their brand being WTF?

Pickles linked an article on her FB page showing Jeremy attending church services without a mask.  It was not a socially distant service either.  Sorry I can’t do a link.

So all their mask wearing and claiming they can’t leave their free house due to the quarantine is just for show?? Who’d have thought? Next you’ll be telling me John David is a pilot!

Well that's true of many young people. They prefer the names that seem fresh to them versus names of people they know that seem played out.  There's reason why the top ten names (by popularity) change over time. And fundies know lots of people due to everyone having big families. They probably know 30 Annas, 20 Hannahs and 3 or 4 Bethanys.  There are so many fundies named Anna, it's changed my perception of the name.

Evy Jo's birth episode.

 

god, you can tell which grandmother has 19 grandkids and which only has two. Diana has given so much thought  and care to how Felicity might feel. It is very cute and grandmother-ish that she rushed out to buy decorations and presents not only to celebrate the baby, but to help involve Felicity and make this experience really positive for her. She's obviously bursting with excitement. I've never seen Michelle consider anything like that.

And Jinger is one of the daughters, she seems genuinely close to. I still remember the birthday videos of Jordan giving Michelle "you're weird" side-eye. 10 years from now, I not sure how engaged Michelle can feign being.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
