    I choose Bennett! I know that wasn't one of your options, but I think it's such a great name (see signature!). But if I'm choosing between Benjamin and Benedict, I think Benjamin is a more classic name.

    I would love to meet a little Bennett! I think it's adorable for someone else's child.

    When I see Benedict, I immediately think 'Arnold', so that's a no for me. I voted Benjamin (I prefer nn Benji to just Ben anyway, and you can't get Benji from Benedict!).

    I like both

    Benjamin has been my favorite boys name since childhood, but I agree that Benedict is a really snazzy alternative.

    And I already know a Jamie so Benedict is slowly creeping in.

    Benedict because:
    a) It's more interesting - I know a stack of Benjamin nn Bens.
    b) As you mentioned, Benedict Cumberbatch
