Benvolio is a boy's name of Italian origin. With a definition of "goodwill," this name will keep baby on the path of patience and compassion. In Romeo and Juliet, Benvolio is Romeo's cousin who acts as sometimes-peacemaker. He persuades Romeo to go to the party where he first meets Juliet, setting the whole story in motion, so your little Benvolio can feel encouraged to go out and make things happen.
