Pop Culture References for the Name Benvolio

Reminiscent of (if not directly inspired by) the word benevolent: "wishing (someone) well, kindly"

I'd just like to point out that Benvolio is the peacemaker in Romeo and Juliet, always urging the others to stop fighting. Persuading Romeo to go to the party is not his most significant action by a long shot (and it's really Mercutio who does that.)
