Comments on Bennett:

A great alternative to Benjamin if you’d prefer something less common and bit snappier and more anglo. Underutilized and the nn “ben” is great.

If I wanted to use the nickname Ben for a future son, I’d choose this name over Benjamin. This name is relatively uncommon and is easy to say.
