Jessa Duggar Discusses Decision to Hold Off on Naming Baby

by at .

It's been almost a week since Jessa Duggar gave birth to her first child, but she and husband Ben Seewald still have yet to reveal the baby boy's name.

Of course, there's a simple reason for that - Jessa and Ben still haven't chosen a name!

"We want to give him a strong name, with a lot of meaning," Jessa told People magazine recently.

While she wouldn't give any specifics as to what monikers she and Ben are considering, Jessa did say that the list is comprised mainly of names of "heroes from the Christian faith."

She added that she and Ben will not be going with a "letter theme" like Jessa's theme.

"It's been really cool to meet him, look at his face and match a name to who he is," Jessa said. "It is going to be very special. A lot of thought has gone into it."

"He is going to have this name for the rest of his life," Ben added.

But while Jessa and Ben may be uncertain of what to name the little guy, there's no doubt that they're head over heels for the new addition to their family.

After what's been described as a "very intense" labor, Jessa immediately began posting pics and gushing about her bundle of joy on social media. 

Now he just needs a name so that Jessa's equally excited fans can give #BabySeewald a new hashtag.
