Popularity: this week.

Benson has outgrown its long association with a wisecracking TV butler, to the point that since reentering the Top 1000 in 2010, it's climbed more than 200 points to Number 577. Parents may see it as an alternate route to nickname Ben, very different in image than the biblical Benjamin. Benson also carries the patronymic theme made popular by Jackson, Harrison, and Jefferson. More recently, Olivia Benson of Law and Order: SVU has reclaimed this as a surname.
