    Name Meaning

    English: from the medieval personal name Benedict , from Latin Benedictus ‘blessed’. In the 12th century the Latin form of the name is found in England alongside versions derived from the Old French form Beneit, Benoit, which was common among the Normans. The surname has also been established in Ireland since the 14th century.

    German: from a short form of the personal name Bernhard .

    Altered form of French Benet or Bennet or of some other similar (like-sounding) French surname. Altered ending reflects the Canadian and American French practice of sounding the final -t.
