Jessa Duggar's Nickname for Her Newborn Son Is a Lot Easier to Swallow Than 'Spurgeon' (VIDEO)

jessa duggarEverybody loves a good, unique baby name -- but the world at large is having a bit of a tough time learning to appreciate Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Ben Seewald's newborn son's moniker: Spurgeon. (Isn't that a fish?) Luckily, the new parents have revealed that they'll actually be calling little Spurgeon by his nickname, and we can promise you this: You'll like it a lot better than what's on his birth certificate!


That's right, the sweet little guy might officially be known as Spurgeon Elliott Seewald, but as Jessa said in a video released by TLC on Wednesday, everybody calls him ... Quincy!

"His nickname has been Quincy since we first found out we were pregnant," said the 23-year-old reality star, who explained the nickname further on her family blog:

"When we first found out that we were expecting a baby, Ben and I were talking about a letter theme for our kids and Ben suggested, 'Why don't we go with the letter Q?' lol! Of course that was a joke, but from that point, Ben started calling our little one 'Quincy,' and the nickname just sorta stuck."

Awww! How cute is that? And I must say, I'm somewhat relieved that Jessa and Ben didn't go with a "J" name. Because frankly, aren't those all used up by now? Plus, it's important for every new branch of a family to do their own thing. And Quincy is just too adorable!
