Thread: Is Benjamin too overused?
May 26th, 2013 09:08 AM #11
Benjamin was my grandpa's name, and is still on the table as a possibility for us. Benjamin is quite high up there on the charts, but that's because it's a tried-and-true classic... It's stood the test of time, and yet it's still a favourite. I think it fits nicely with your other names, and has the same Biblical charm.INTP Anthropologist Living in the centre of China, married to a Persian, and just enjoying a completely unpredictable life

I don't think it's overused, I think I've only met 2 Ben's in my whole life. It's a lovely name and a timeless classic.♧ mama to finnegan alexander [11.29.15] ♧

I work at at Children's hospital and I've seen a lot of Ben's lately ... so I would have to disagree with the others and say that I do think it is becoming overused. That being said, it is one of my favourites - and the popularity is one of the only things holding me back on it. I think it goes really nicely with your sibset.Mom to Claire Roseline (3) and Ross Thomas (1).

I don't think it's any more overused than your other children's names. Which are all familiar, but gorgeous and timeless. I think it fits in really well with your other children. Honestly, I only know one Benjamin under the age of 10--I know much more my own age or who went to school with one of my little sisters (the youngest of which is now a senior in high school, so almost an entirely different generation). I think Benjamin's lovely, and I would love to see it with John, Daniel, Samuel, Matthew, Grace, and and Peter!
