Baby Seewald's Name 01:50

Jessa and Ben share the meaning behind the name of their second child.

Now, Baby Seewald has a name: Henry Wilberforce Seewald. In the above video, Jessa and Ben explain the significance of the name to their family. Matthew Henry was a minister and author of biblical commentaries. William Wilberforce was a philanthropist who led the movement to eradicate slavery in the British empire. Jessa and Ben Seewald admire both of these men and honored them by giving their second child their names.

Henry's big brother, Spurgeon Elliot Seewald, also has a name deep in meaning for the family. Charles Spurgeon, a preacher, and Jim and Elisabeth Elliot, missionaries, had strong influences on Ben and Jessa's faith.

This party of four sure is adorable! Watch the Seewalds on Counting On Mondays at 9/8c. Watch full episodes on TLC GO here.
