Apparently also occasionally used in Hungarian:

It’s funny to read that this name is nice and easy to pronounce. My name is Benedetta and I have lived in London for a while. The only people who pronounce it well straight away are Spanish and Romanian only :)
For most English speakers the pronunciation is “Benadita” or “Bernadetta”. For this reason I don’t think it is actually easy to pronounce and that is why I ask people to call me by my nickname.
Important thing to mention regards the nickname. Bettina is not used much from what I know, not even in Italy. My nickname is “Bene” (pronounced with Italian, not English, “e”) but I know other women named Benedetta who like to be called “Benny”.
I hope this is useful.

Great name! I love Italian names!

I think this name can be a good choice for couples that had difficulty with having a child (I think it has a beautiful meaning and it also gives good luck). I think it's also an easy name to pronounce.

Bette, Betty, Nettie, Netta and Detta are potential nicknames.

My sister is named after our paternal great grandmother Benedetta from Sicily. They Americanized her birth name as "Banadita". We have a nickname of "Bonnie".

I love this name. It has a beautiful meaning, sounds nice when you say it, and looks pretty written down. It doesn't have the harshness of the "ct" in Benedicta.

Means blessed or the benediction.

Ben(like the boys name) e(short e) det(with a short e) ta(with a short a)
Ben(like the boys name) dee(with long e) ta(short a) (this is the way my name is pronounced but if you were to travel into non US countries-Italy, where the name is still used-it would be pronounced the first way)

From personal experience-it is a rather hard name to live with. I have always had my name mispronounced-sometimes accidently, sometimes purposely! I am most commonly called Bernadette. It is a name that is hard on a child but is constantly admired by everyone who hears it (now that I am an adult, I hear compliments about it being a beautiful name almost non-stop). An easier way to go is to adopt a nickname with this name-I use variations of Bennie.
