So apparently the girls for Jessa and Ben will be named after plants. I'm calling Philodendron for the next girl right now.

How about "Mirage" for M7?  It's pretty and, IMO, a good reflection of her parents' marriage.

Eden Elizabeth Seewald

7 lbs 13 oz

July 9

 

Ivy had a two syllable botanical name, Eden continues both of those trends and is Biblical, too. Ivy’s middle name is classic, Jane. Elizabeth has a classical feel as well as being very Biblical.

 

Madeline Faith Duggar

6 lbs 15 oz

September 11

 

I am heart weary when I think of Anna bringing another child into that deeply dysfunctional family. I settled on Madeline because it starts with M, is Multi-syllabic, and has ties to happy things like those adorable French pastries. As to the middle name, Faith, I think that is all her mother has left. So, I think Faith will be this little one’s moniker.

But Madeleine is the name for Mary Magdalen, who is (wrongly, but almost universally) assumed to have been a prostitute. I highly doubt any Duggar has even a passing acquaintance with Proust or fine pastries. 
I'm thinking some variation of Michelle--Michaela *but spelled weird--or Mary, but looking biblical, like Moriah.

On the other hand, despite its popularity, Madeleine still has an upscale ring in the US, so maybe go with that.

Do we know it's a girl?

Chelsy Bontrager Maxwell and John Maxwell named their new daughter Madeline, and the parents are both from fundie families.

If they don’t nickname this baby “Mad Max” they are wasting a huge opportunity.

Oh well, maybe they see it as redemptive. Or don't make the connection.

Jessa: Clementine Rose or Theodore Benjamin

Clementine Rose is a nice name- too bad the Seewalds didn’t…

With all that’s going on with Josh, I imagine Anna going with a name like Mercy Faith.

I’ve been expecting Anna to name a baby Mercy since the first scandal broke. Recently it occurred to me that it might be Mercy Dawn because “His mercies are new each morning.”

However, I agree with those who have suggested Magnolia or Melody as other top contenders.

Well she may not be due for a while.

Isn't she due in November?  Somehow that sticks in my mind.

She just said "fall." It could be late September for all we know.

My point was that this baby news will be treated differently by the families. They’re likely not to be very public about it because they won’t want to bring attention to Josh and his trial. They know if they mention it there will be a lot of negative comments.

Mira Faith Duggar

The other names that have come to mind are Mabel and Madelyn. I agree that we will get a good insight into Anna’s mind if she goes with a name like Mercy or Manna.

Yes, it's from the bible. I've never seen it used as a name.

I really hope Anna doesn’t use Mercy for this innocent baby’s name. Why should her name be tied to compassion and forgiveness for her awful father? The rest of her kids have relatively nice normal names. Don’t make this one carry more more of a burden than she already will.

@AussieKrissy Manna came to mind when thinking about how Anna insisted days before his arrest that Josh was a good provider. My sardonic thought after the arrest and rumors that she was at odds with JB was, “who’s going to provide for you now? Manna from heaven?”

It’s not a likely choice (Google says it’s an Islamic name) but a choice like that would certainly show Anna’s mindset.

For Waller baby #6:

Boy: Patrick Henry (That way they skirt the whole Catholic issue. "Give me liberty or give me death" should play well in Texas these days)

Girl: Deanna Renee (not strictly biblical but will have something meaningful to them)

For the Pecans I'll say Deborah Joy for a girl and for a boy I'll guess Patrick Daniel.  Born 1/22/22.

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?
