You can probably guess what a Duggar family member is called if you pick a random J name and hope for the best, but there's a whole slew of Duggar nicknames that Counting On viewers have to memorize as well. And yes, we're talking about the nicknames given to them by the family instead of the common monikers that Duggar snarkers use in forums (TBH the elegant simplicity of Jim Boob always slays us). The Next Gen Duggar parents have obvious nicknames for their kids. We know that adorable little Spurgeon Seewald is called Spurgy by Jessa and Ben. Unfortunately, that nickname is no less tragic than "Spurgeon." And we also know that the Dillards call Israel and Samuel Izzy and Sam Sam, respectively, which seems a lot more reasonable. But what about the actual Duggar children? We can hardly keep up with all of the Duggar kids names, so this was going to require some serious digging.
Or not. In an old article about Jim Bob's run for Senate (insane, right), we were filled in on some of the little Duggars childhood pet names. And though they range from casual abbreviations to super saccharine titles, they will, unfortunately, never top Jim Boob. Click through our gallery to learn all of the Duggar family nicknames.
