On Tuesday, February 23, Joe & Kendra Duggar revealed that their baby girl is here! She’s the third child for the young Counting On couple. She joins big brother Garrett, 2, and big sister Addison, 1. Naturally, one of their fans’ most-asked questions was what the baby’s name is. Now that she’s here, the family has finally announced her name. They are also telling fans all about the baby girl, and more details are likely coming.
In a social media post on Tuesday, the couple shared two photos of themselves with their newborn. In the caption, they reveal that her name is Brooklyn Praise.
Upon learning her name, fans of the family are realizing that she’s not the first Duggar with the name Brooklyn.
Joe & Kendra Duggar’s baby may be named after another family member
Josie Duggar’s middle name is Brooklyn. Josie is the youngest of Joe’s siblings. She’s now 11 years old. Josie was born prematurely and was sick as an infant. The couple may have wanted to honor Josie and her incredible growth by using her middle name for their baby girl.
Fans of the family vividly remember Josie’s birth and how scary that time was for the family. Now, fans are happy to see how healthy and happy Josie is.
From what fans can see on the show and on social media, it doesn’t look like Joe and Josie are particularly close. It’s possible that they have a special bond, and that’s why Joe and Kendra are using Josie’s middle name.
It’s unclear if this is the couple’s plan. Perhaps they simply liked the name. Addison and Brooklyn go together well, many fans think.
In the comments section of their announcement post, fans are talking about it. They are saying that it might be difficult for the family to come up with unique names. They may not use the same first name twice, but they could use the same middle names.
One user comments, “I’m thinking just harder to find unused names in that family.” One fan writes, “Im sure they just liked the name. It goes will with Addison.” This fan thinks that it’s unlikely that the baby and Josie actually share a name.
So, do you think Joe & Kendra Duggar named their baby girl after Josie Duggar? Or do you think they simply like the name? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
