Seewald, 20, went into detail about the inspiration behind the name of the 9-pound, 11-ounce infant he and his wife welcomed Nov. 5 in an all-natural childbirth at their Arkansas home.

"Charles Spurgeon was a preacher who lived back in the 19th century and he had a big impact on our lives," and "Elliot, that was the last name of Jim Elliot and Elizabeth Elliot, and Jim Elliot was a missionary," Seewald said.

As previously reported, Jessa previously said that she and Ben were looking to give the child "a strong name with a lot of meaning" linked to "heroes from the Christian faith."
