"I named my son Bennett. I wanted something unique and his father wanted something very traditional so we thought this was a good compromise. We call him Ben, Benny, Bennett or Bean." Sep. 26, 2019:
"Bennette, with the extra "e", is a name used for generations on my husband's side, most recently his father. He has always talked of people expecting him to be a woman because of the spelling - so we named our daughter Bennette and call her Bennie!" May. 12, 2015:
"We named our son Bennet Owen. He likes having it spelled differently--though some people think it's pronounced "Benay." We call him Ben. He is often Bennet at school because there are lots of Benjamins. I was surprised to see how popular Bennet(t) had become among boys' names." Jul. 10, 2009:
"This was my father-in-law's name. He died of cancer in 2000, so we named our son Gavin Bennett after him! I wanted it as a first name, but my brother-in-law is Bennett Jr. and wanted to name his son Bennett III. Can't take naming rights from him now can I?!?! I love my little Gavin Bennett!!"
