Other Origin(s):Latin, Portuguese
Bento is a bright-sounding boy’s name of Brazilian origin. Borrowed from the Portuguese name Benedito, which flows from the Latin name Benedictus, meaning “blessed,” you can thank heaven on high for your little ray of hope. Like many beautiful Brazilian names, Bento carries the legacy of a Catholic saint. Celebrated every July 11 as the Father of Western Monasticism and famed for his many miracles, Saint Benedict of Nursia and the name he bears might do wonders for baby’s inner believer.
