Originally a French name, Bennett made its way mysteriously into Wales during the Renaissance. It remains a rather common name in Wales, as well as in the state of Utah, where it is a common surname and often memorialized as a given name. From Benedictus (Latin: good speaker), though it is now commonly defined as meaning "small beloved" or "little beloved."

I prefer this name for a female rather than a male.

The only Bennett I have ever met was female. Personally, I like it for both genders.

I hate this name as a first name. It sounds so pretentious.

If I wanted to use the nickname Ben for a future son, I'd choose this name over Benjamin. This name is relatively uncommon and is easy to say.

I love this name! I know a girl named Bennett and she's named after her grandmother.

I know a boy named Bennett. Pretty much everyone but me calls him Ben, but I love saying his full name, so I swap the two regularly. Maybe it's because the Bennett I know is so fun and intelligent - but I really like this name.

I know two Bennett's, one is named after the other actually (they're not related). They both go by Ben.

I prefer Benjamin, but this is ok. It's a little too surname-y, but that's probably why it's risen all the way to #202.

I love this name.. but I don't pronounce it "BEN-NET" I like it pronounced "BE-NAY" Plus, if I have a daughter I'm naming her Benét. I think it's adorable!

We are expecting baby number four, if it is a boy we will be naming him Bennett! I love it!

I like this name, so we gave it to our cat. Bennett D'Angelo (yes, he has a middle name, because I just like names). Anyway, he's a brat, so he got the nickname Benito when we discovered that was Mussolini's first name. He mostly goes by Ben or Benny though.
