Other Origin(s):Hebrew, Portuguese
Meaning:Son of the right hand, son of the south
Benjamim is a boy’s name of Brazilian and Portuguese origin. Borrowed from Benjamin, or Binyamin in Hebrew, meaning “son of the south” or “son of the right hand,” Benjamim and all its meaning in the Hebrew Bible might make a mighty believer out of baby. While Benjamin is known in Christian belief as one of the last, but one of the most beloved sons of Jacob, the Brazilian name Benjamim is better known in basketball and is borne by Angolan players Benjamim Avô and Benjamim Romano. An episode of Bom Dia Benjamim!—a Portuguese TV mini-series for children—might also keep your tiny tot on their toes!
