The Willis family called their Jedidiah “Jedi” but the Duggars just called theirs Jed. Maybe because they called his twin Jer. I guess Jed and Jer sound better than Jedi and Jeri.

If you need a little help for your guesses.

How sad is it that I know lots of parents whose kids have names that this table can create?

For Jill and Derick 

Boy: Abel Richard ends in el like Israel and Samuel and Derick’s dad’s name

Girl: Selah Michelle, she liked the name Selah first pregnancies and while she isn’t on the best terms with her mother I can see them using Jill’s middle name for their first daughter.

I think Jill will use Catherine (is that derricks mum's name) as a middle name. I would say Selah (is that pronounced like sailor?) But I can see enough time had passed that they might have moved on.

So I will say Selah Catherine or Ruth Catherine 

Boy Luke Derrick or what ever derricks fathers name or middle name was.

Ezekiel Richard or Wren Michelle

I can see them sticking with Biblical for a boy and going with earthy/boho for a girl. Middle names, Richard for Derick's dad and Michelle because it's Jill's middle name.

It’s pronounced SEE-luh, but can also be said as SAY-luh,(which is basically sailor).

For a boy, I could see Jill and Derrick going with Gabriel. For a girl, I think their tastes have changed. Perhaps a nature theme. I would say Willow except Willow Dillard doesn’t flow well.

I do think that the Dillards will keep the “el” ending for a boy. I think Ezekiel and Gabriel are both strong choices, but I’ll go with Nathaniel Richard.

I will stick with Selah for a girl. It still sounds pretty and unique but not too “out there.” And if Cathy Dillard’s given name is Catherine,  Selah Catherine sounds good.

It's actually pronounced Seh-luh (a short 'eh' sound rather than ee or ay). It's also not a name, but evangelical Christians will evangelical Christian.

Source: I'm Jewish and speak Hebrew.

I really hope not. While I can see it happening, I wish those people would tone down the cultural appropriation.

Selah is in the top 400 girls names in the U.S. currently. Ezra is top 50 and Levi is top 20. I don’t think anyone is going to stop using these names just because they are Hebrew names in origin. It’s not only evangelicals using them.

Fun facts: Kanye West and Lauryn Hill both have songs titled Selah. Lauryn Hill also has a daughter named Selah.

This is a poll on preferred pronunciation of Selah. Not knowing its origins, I would pronounce it as See la. But I think all three pronunciations sound nice. If they don’t mind the initial mispronunciations, I think it’s a nice name.

Spoiler

Looking at the Hebrew I agree with @SweetJuly. Randos and nameberry probably aren't exactly a great source lol.

That being said I don't have faith in any Duggar offspring to care much about how to properly pronounce Hebrew words. I'd also bet they'd attach some sort of made up godly meaning to it.

Anyway I'd guess Selah Catherine for a girl and Raphael Richard for a boy.

My point was that people can choose to pronounce names any way they want. I wasn’t saying that @SweetJuly was incorrect in how the word is pronounced in its original language. I knew two girls named Caryn: one pronounced Car in and one Care in. I don’t think either of them was wrong.

Eh, if it's in the Bible, is it cultural appropriation? The Hebrew Bible/Old Testament is as much as Christian religious text as it is a Jewish one, and Christians have been using names from it nearly since Christianity began.

      Just found out that a friend, who was in home hospice, died last night. He was a cantankerous old guy, but still, a friend.

      I ran into this cartoon that made me smile. It's nice to see something wholesome. Plus, Triceratops are my favorite dinosaurs too.

      🎵 It's beginning to look a lot like Allston Christmas 🎵
       
      It's mid-August, time for the biggest holiday in Boston (and Cambridge, Somerville, and other nearby cities/towns). The traditional decorations are going out on the curb, the UHauls are converging on the city, and the Storrowings have begun in earnest. As a bonus for this year, the T is a disaster and occasionally bursts info flames, if it's running at all. Welcome, students!
      As the BossTones once said:
      I was here before they came,
      I'll be here long after.
      Don't wanna swear,
      but it seems clear
      that I'm gonna have ta.
      Ah . . . . fuck.

      Well, I survived the ultrasound. It was incredibly uncomfortable and invasive, but I lived. Thank you so much once again to everyone who responded to my initial post. You guys helped me so much so that I even had a normal bp when the nurse checked it!

      Guess I forgot to tell y'all I fell and dislocated my ankle last week. Had the ankle put back into place but also have something called a tri-mallealar (sp) fracture. 3 places! Surgery next Thursday for the lovely hardware needed to put it all back together. Did I mention that Oxy is like shooting a bb at a hurricane for pain?
