I was named “Benedict” after my great great uncle Benedict Arnold, the great American traitor. I tell this story often so I was pleased when people came into my English class “Ben, the new pope has chosen the name Benedict!!!” I was thrilled. Along these lines, the Baby Name Wizard NameVoyager is a great site that shows how popular your names (and others) were/are at different points in history.
