Baby name ideas for Derick and Jill Duggar Dillard

Jill Duggar's family has plenty of experience in the baby-naming department. Now that it's her turn to add to the brood, will the pregnant 19 Kids and Counting star follow in her parents' footsteps and give her baby-to-be a name that begins with J? Maybe. Or she might try one of these…

While they work through the baby-naming process, Jill and her hubby Derick Dillard are referring to their little one, a boy, as "baby Dilly." The young newlyweds have, however, given us a few hints about the name that will go on the birth certificate.

"We are not going to do a letter theme," revealed Jill, who is due next spring. "But we may do some kind of theme, like family names."

Every one of Jill's 18 siblings has a name that stars with J: Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace and Josie.

So, if the expectant couple has ruled out J names, then what family names might they consider? Well, since Jill's dad is Jim Bob, the name Bob or Robert is a contender. As is Rick, the name of Derick's dad, who passed away in his sleep when Derick was in college.

Perhaps the little one will be named after his father, Derick. Or his name will honor both Dad and Grandpa: Derick Bob or Bob Derick. And there is the possibility that the baby will be named Duggar. (It's not so unusual, considering that he'll have an Aunt Jinger.)

With a strong religious background, Jill and Derick may opt for a Biblical name, such as Noah, Daniel, Asher, Solomon, Elijah, Abel or Moses.

What do you think Jill and Derick will name their son?
