Baby boy Benedict will undoubtedly be a blessing in your life. This Latin name dates all the way back to the sixth century when St. Benedict founded the Benedictine order of monks. While the name has held prominence within the Catholic religion, it is just as fitting for a little boy raised outside of the faith. Benedict has a somewhat classic feel to it, making it a perfect choice for a charming little boy. With celebrities like the Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch to look up to, this inquisitive young soul is sure to marvel at the world.
