Name for today-Benedict

Origin of the name Benedict:

Derived from the Latin Benedictus (blessed), which is from benedicere (to speak well of, to bless). The name was borne by St. Benedict (c. 480 – 543), an Italian monk and founder of the Benedictine Order. He was responsible form the building of the great monastery at Monte Cassino, which remains the spiritual center of the Benedictines.

    I really like Benedict. I prefer him to the dull and overused Benjamin.

    Definitely! Rupert & Theodore are perfect with Benedict. Benedict Leo comes to mind.
