I like this name, it's familiar but completely different at the same time, also Benni and Mina are cute nicknames for a girl.

MonikerWanderer Says:


I love this name. Benji is such an adorable nickname. I'm so-so on Benjamin, oddly.

paulapuddephatt Says:


It's quite pretty with the Mina sound at the end. Ben or Mina could be nicknames. Or Beni, maybe.

AmadeusMozart Says:


I like Benjamin well enough, but I don't like Benjamina as much. It does, however, have plenty of fantastic nicknames. Benji and Mina are both very nice for girls. The full name just seems a little fusty to me.
