Name Meaning

In the Bible, Benjamin is the youngest son of Jacob and one of the founders of the twelve tribes of Isreal. It is still considered a timeless name and has regained popularity in the past decade. It’s also slang for a $100 bill (holla!) If the name feels too formal for you, Ben is Benjamin’s more fun, unbuttoned little cousin.
