Since he was born, Duggar fans have been hung up on Spurgeon Elliot Seewald‘s name. Spurgeon is the son of Jessa and Ben Seewald and is one of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s many grandchildren.

Spurgeon was named after Charles Spurgeon, a British preacher. In a video after his birth, Ben said, “He had a big impact on our lives. His writings and his sermons and books are still around today. They just continued to impact many, many people.”

Spurgeon is the oldest of Ben and Jessa’s four children. When they revealed his name is Spurgeon, fans wondered if the couple would use a similar theme for the rest of their children’s names. But their other kids have more mainstream names. They have a son Henry Wilberforce and two daughters, Ivy Jane and Fern Elliana.

Duggar fans continue talking about Spurgeon Seewald’s name.

In a new post on the Duggar Bates Confessions Instagram page, a fan wrote that they noticed Ben was hesitant when announcing his son Spurgeon’s name. They think he might not have felt comfortable with the name and wasn’t sure about making it official.

In the comments section, fans are commenting about how they feel about the little boy’s name. One fan writes, “Spurgeons name is bad enough without spelling it incorrectly lol! 😂”

Another writes, “Poor Ben he is completely dominated by Jessa. Even poorer Spurgeon stuck with that horrible name.”

Someone else points out, “Jessa didn’t chose his name, Ben did so if be was uncomfortable it wasn’t because of that. (sic)”

  1. Sturgeon is a fish, and an ugly one at that. Spurgeon sounds like that ugly fish. Poor kid will be made fun of his whole life.
