New parents Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald welcomed their first child, a baby boy, into the world on November 5th, but they decided to take their time in choosing the perfect name. After much consideration, they've finally made a decision, and they've named their son Spurgeon Elliot Seewald. Watch the video above to hear how the happy couple chose such a unique name.

So why the wait? "We want to give him a strong name, with a lot of meaning," Jessa told People. And she had no shortage of inspiration -- she asked for name ideas from fans and received more than 100,000 replies.

Ben was in agreement on taking time to really consider name options: "He is going to have this name for the rest of his life," the doting dad said.

There's no doubt that the not-so-little guy (he was 21 inches and 9 pounds, 11 ounces, when he was born) will enjoy plenty of time with his older 7-month-old cousin Israel, the son of Jessa's older sister Jill and her husband Derick Dillard.

You'll be able to hear all about Jessa's pregnancy on "Jill and Jessa: Counting On," which premieres in December. Until then, keep following TLCme to get all your Jill and Jessa updates.
