Meaning:Son of the right hand or son of the south
Benjee is a masculine name of Hebrew origin. An adorable variant of Benjamin, this name translates to “son of the right hand” or “son of the south,” based on the Biblical figure Benjamin, who was 12th the youngest son of Jacob. This makes Benjee a lovely name if baby is going to have plenty of older siblings in your family. For a touch of nostalgia, this name may remind you of the fictional dog Benji—think of a smaller, stray version of Lassie. Whether you want to inspire baby to be a dog lover or to put family first, the name Benjee will definitely be a memorable choice.
