    Thanks for all the feedback so far! Wow, the poll is quite close. Sometimes it's Benjamin, other times Benedict, and even a tie!

    I think you have to be a serious Catholic to use Benedict. Actually, I know one who is 2 or 3 yrs old now. The pope association is the only thing that can overcome Benedict Arnold association, and only in certain circles...but I think it has great meaning and its a shame that B. Arnold put it out of favor for so long.

    But I did vote for Benjamin, only because I would be more likely to use it myself and it seems easier to wear for a middle school boy.

    It's fine outside of the US, Catholic or otherwise. I don't even have any clue as to what Benedict Arnold actually did. O_o
