The Duggar family has a long history of unusual baby names, but Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, may have just chosen the most, um…unique handle yet for their newborn baby boy.

Shortly after the child was born, Jess and Ben revealed that they planned to take their time choosing a name.

In a recent interview with People magazine, Jessa stated that she and Ben were working hard to come up with a “strong name with a lot of meaning.”

Now, after nearly a week of deliberation, the Seewalds have decided to saddle their firstborn with the unfortunate moniker of Spurgeon.

Yes, Spurgeon Elliot Seewald is officially the newest member of the Duggar clan.

Fans of the HBO series Eastbound and Down might remember Spurgeon as the name of Kenny Powers’ pet hermit crab.

The word also has an Urban Dictionary entry that we won’t reprint here out of respect to Jessa and Ben, but trust us: it’s a doozy

Not surprisingly, Jessa and Ben didn’t draw their inspiration from either of those sources.

Instead, little Spurgeon is named after 19th Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon, who was apparently one of the best known ministers in England during his lifetime.

Hey, at least it’s original. Here’s hoping they have some good nickname options in mind!
