Discussion: 19 "J" Names and Counting

Even with nineteen kids, there are plenty of "J" names that the Duggars have not used. How many can you come up with? 

Thanks to a loyal reader for giving us the idea for this discussion question!

I'm still floored they haven't used:

Jackie, Jenna, or Jane.

Maybe Jenna is the northern version of Jana? But still, Jackie DEFINITELY needs to happen and Jane is a classic.

Jessica Jane/Janie. Jack. Johann(kinds nodding on that one!

These probably have been said already but I thought of Joyce, Jonathan, Janice and Joan.

Well I've thought of a name that no has mentioned, I really think they should consider using the name if they ever have another girl. I think it's beautiful & unique just like their family.... Jimberly!

just thought i'd mention that a few people here posted the names juan and jose. well i wanted to mention for the one's who dont know that juan is the spanish version of the name john in english which they already have a john and jose is the spanish version of the name joseph in english which they already have a joseph. also
i saw someone mention the name jill and wanted to say they already have a jill.
:-)... something funny my great granpa's name was jesus, my grandpa's name was jesus, my father's name is jesus, my brother's name is jesus, and i have a nephew name jesus. my husband had a uncle named jesus as well. lol...it's a common spanish name. in spanish it's pronounce he like blowing out the word he so you feel the air blowing out of your mouth to pronounce the j and to say the e you pronounce it like saying e what are you looking at...lol...and the rest is sus...as in zus..hope this makes sense and helps...lol... i really like the names jazlyn and janessa also maybe genesis but with a j...jenesis...btw my brother's middle name is james and so ij his son's. lol...

With the abundance of J names it always struck me as odd that they named Joy-Anna and Johanna so similarly.

Janissa, Jasmine and Juliet for girls
Joel, Jacob and Jaden for boys

When Michelle was pregnant with Josie didn't TLC post a contest to name the baby? I understand with the emergency deliver Jim Bob and Michelle named Josie-I do not even think the kids has a vote. I never saw anything about the contest after Josie's birth-not even an acknowledgement from TLC that the contest had been cancelled due to the circumstances

People keep suggesting Jack. They have a Jackson already. I wouldn't think the would want to name another "Jack" since Jackson may shorten his name to that as he gets older. Same kind of thing with the "Jameison" suggestion. They have a James also and a Jessa which is too close to Jessica in my opinion. However, I am surprised they have not used Jonah yet since it is a very biblical name!
