Naming a Miscarried Baby?
In interviews, Duggar has said the family plans to give the baby a name. They don’t know if it was a girl or a boy, so I guess that will make naming a little harder. (The baby was at 19 weeks when she miscarried.)
This brings up the question — would you name a child who didn’t come to term? For some parents, it’s too heartbreaking altogether. For others, it’s a way to make peace with what’s happened.
What do you think? Would you give a miscarried baby a name? What’s your reasoning? Have you actually experienced the situation?
Update: The Duggars found out the child was a girl, and named her Jubilee Shalom.
