    Thank you for your thoughts! The last pope is our main reason for liking Benedict, and my family was on the 'wrong' side of the American Revolution, so those associations don't bother me much. Teasing potential and the perceived inevitability of the nickname Ben do bother me, though. Maybe we will go with the idea of Leo Benedict William. I'd been planning on using my maiden name in that second middle name slot, but this idea may be better overall... I'd appreciate any other thoughts or comments!

    I love Leo but Benedict sounds amazing with Elisabeth. I wouldn't worry about teasing because of his name, kids will tease regardless of what someone's name is and around here, Benedict isn't (and wasn't when I was a kid) synonymous with Arnold and traitor.
