We’re always adding new baby names to our database, and the latest collection all have international roots. These additions were partially inspired by the update of our baby name popularity page to include Top 100 lists from several countries beyond the U.S. We also thank Nameberry readers who contributed names from their home countries that were new to us. Here, the dozen (plus) newest international baby names on Nameberry.
Bente, the Danish feminine form of Benedict pronounced ben-tah, is a popular girls' name in both The Netherlands and Denmark though largely unknown in the English-speaking world. It suffers by being a near-homonym of the English word bent, not the best dictionary equivalent for a first name. Still, if you're looking for a girls' name that equates to Ben or Benjamin or Benedict, this may be one of your best bets.
