2019 Duggar Grandkids Predications

2019 is already turning out to be a big year in naming.  A new prince was born, the Kardashians are expecting a baby, and 4 Duggar kids are expecting this year! The Duggars are a family that interest me greatly. They are a large family with noticeable names, all the kids have J names. Now the grandkids are being born and are all stirring in the name community with some of the names the families pick. I figured some name predictions would be fun.

Jessa and Ben Seewald
Siblings: Spurugeon Elliot and Henry Wilberforce
Gender: Unknown
Their two older sons are named after religious figures who had huge influence in their lives. I know they will do that for third child but its whole they honor that is the questions. In my predictions I have some possible honor names and some names that seem to be their style.
Boys: Wesley (John Wesley), Calvin (John Calvin), Hudson (Hudson Taylor), Felix, Miles 
Girls: Lottie/Charlotte (Lottie Moon), Elisabeth (Elisabeth Elliot), Josephine, Beatrice, Ruby

Joe and Kendra Duggar 
Sibling: Garrett David
Gender: Unknown
I always wonder if any of the other families will stick to one letter for their children like Josh did. Joe and Kendra could or they can go another route and pick names that are common but not over heard like Garrett. I am predicating a little mix of both.
Boys: Gavin, Connor, Grady, Bradley, Ian
Girls: Julia, Nora, Samantha, Grace, Gabriella 

Josh and Anna Duggar
Siblings: Mackynkie Renee, Michael James, Marcus Anthony, Meredith Grace, and Mason Garett
Gender: Unknown
Josh and Anna followed in the Duggar tradition of using the same letter for all their children. They will for sure use a M name. They do use a mix of modern M names and more classical names.
Boys: Matthew, Maverick, Malcolm, Max, Miles
Girls: Morgan, Mia, Margaret, Molly, Melissa

Joy Anna and Austin Forsyth 
Sibling: Gideon Martyn
Gender: Unknown
Joy and Austin picked a biblical name for their first son and one that is not super popular. I have a feeling they will stick to the biblical theme for baby #2 but not the common ones like James or Mary.
Boys: Malachi, Simon, Judah, Levi, Micah
Girls: Lydia, Edith, Delilah, Leah, Eliza

If you were curious about the other Duggar grandkids here is the full list. 
Mackynzie Renee Duggar
Michael James Duggar 
Marcus Anthony Duggar
Israel David Dillard
Meredith Grace Duggar
Spurgeon Elliot Seewald
Henry Wilberforce Seewald
Samuel Scott Dillard
Mason Garrett Duggar
Gideon Martyn Forsyth
Garrett David Duggar
Felicity Nicole Vuolo

A few of the names were only ranked this year and the last time they were on the list. Those were Ahmir, Benicio, and Kylo for boys. As for girls it was Violeta and Kamilah. 

It's always interesting to see what names have been off the chart and for how long. It makes me think about the reasons the names are back. Do you have any guesses?
