This Could Be The Meaning Behind Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard's Son's Name! Was It For Biblical Reasons Or Something Deeper?

As if welcoming a baby boy into The Duggars fold isn't precious enough, the possible meaning behind Israel David Dillard's name is even cuter!

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard met their first child on Monday after he arrived, and it's pretty obvious the newborn's name has religious meanings.

The name "Israel" means "may God prevail," but in Hebrew, it takes on a longer definition:

"He struggles with God. God perseveres; contends. In the bible when Jacob was in his nineties as a token of blessing God changed his name to Israel."

So, we could all just be satisfied with knowing that the Dillards named their son after something religious, but we're not! There has to be even more to it!

If we all take a quick trip back to last April when the two were engaged to be married, the 22-year-old explained to People magazine how long distance and foreign countries tied into their relationship:

"Our story is so very unique. The first time we talked, he was in Japan, we met in Nepal, he spent time in India and Israel and then came back to Arkansas where he met my family. We have a very international story even though we live so close."

During the 25-year-old's time in Israel, he found the perfect ring for this then-girlfriend and obviously then proposed to her!

We're sure the name David has a biblical meaning behind it as well, but it probably doesn't have a double meaning like Israel does!

Precious, right??
