In a video posted to the Duggar Family Youtube channel
on Wednesday, Jessa and Ben revealed that they've named their baby boy, Spurgeon Elliot Seewald.
Jessa explained that their baby's nickname "has been Quincy, since we first found out we were pregnant." However, instead of naming him Quincy, they've gone with Spurgeon.
As Ben explains, the name comes from the 19th-century theologian, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, whose writing have had a great deal of influence on the couple.
"He had a big impact on our lives," Ben shared in the video. "His writings and his sermons and books are still around today."
As for the middle name Elliot, the Seewalds chose the moniker to honor Jim and Elisabeth Elliot, husband and wife missionaries.
Jim was killed in 1956, during his missionary trip to Ecuador, by members of the native Amazonian tribe, to which they had come to spread the gospel.
Elisabeth then spent years as a missionary to the tribe responsible for her husband's death before returning to America and becoming a respected and prolific religious author. Elisabeth passed away in June at the age of 88.
In a nutshell, Spurgeon Elliot was chosen to honor of the religious figures that have directed the course of Jessa and Ben's spiritual lives.
"He's a precious little bundle of joy and we're so blessed to call him ours," Jessa said, gazing lovingly at her baby – the couple's first child -- as she cradled him in her arms.
