  • I'd name the kid "TimeForaVasectomyDad!"
  • Jumping Jehosaphat!
  • Jojoba?
  • Ok, clearly we have to walk a fine line here. They're of a distinctive brand of Christianity which considers children to be a blessing, no matter how monotonous or generic the lineage becomes. So any name must "fit" with the existing Family Decor™ (no "Pipers" or "Willows", of course). And of course we can't use a name that's already been used, or a name that's not in the Bible, or a name that suggests a lack of commitment to white bread and Sears Best shoes. So with all that in mind (and a short jab to Lyn for not actually putting the link to their web site in the "refers to" field), here are my suggestions: - Jezebel: Biblical, available, and with just a bit of spice. - Jonah: Another seaman for the whale family to swallow - Judah: Maybe it sounds too Jewish for the Duggars, but it can be shortened to "Jude", like Jude Law. He's a hunk, they say. - Jesus: Ok, I know the Protestants don't do this. In Latin America, there are millions of Jesus's, you can't turn around without bumping into one. For whatever reason, the Protestants feel that the one guy everyone is supposed to emulate isn't a respectable namesake. The Duggars have broken new ground (and records) in family development, they seem just like the cutting-edge sort of folks who can bring in the new millennium with a bang by breaking this taboo. - Judas: STOP. Don't snort. Hear me out. Yes, Judas was the traitor, the black sheep of the disciple flock. He had a weak moment... maybe a few weak moments. But isn't that what forgiveness is all about? Isn't that redemption, to invite the betrayer back into your inner circle, tend his wounds, and restore his soul? I left this for last because it's really my favorite... it represents not only a break from uniformity within the Duggar dynasty, but an almost Zen-like transcendence of duality: embracing the opposite, the yin and the yang spinning in mutual harmony until only a gentle gray is visible. I sure hope they give Judas a chance.

  • Jubilee OMG did you see their house? with a home like that they can provide for the kids. I wouldnt do it but you cant really judge. If they were living on welfare than maybe that would be a different story. http://www.duggarfamily.com/photos.html

  • I still say January is a good bet based on the due date :) Or perhaps they could go with something a bit different like Jambalaya. Or maybe something generic like Jared, Jake, or Jane. Let's hope they spice things up and go with something crazy like Jupiter, Jehoshaphat, or Jesus (gasp!).
  • Joan, Janice or Jameson, Jonathan

  • I understand people wanting big families but how can they possible devote equal attention and love to all of them..they can't. As for names, who knows.. I am not any good at all that name stuff. I will add that NOT all of us in AR run around barefoot and pregnant (LOL) seriously though. I am all for the "religious" issue thing but does anyone not think that when all the kids equal a classroom size, it's time to quit.
  • jukem or jello
  • I'm going to go with Jebediah. For the record, 18 is child's play (no pun intended), when you consider this: The highest officially recorded number of children born to one mother is 69, to the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev (1707-1782) of Shuya, Russia. Between 1725 and 1765, in a total of 27 confinements, she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets. 67 of them survived infancy.
