Re: Bendet not surname #general

Rabbi Barukh Bendet and his son Yoel bore the surname GRAD. In this case
BENDET was a personal name and had nothing to do with a surname BENDET or
BENDETSON.

Chaim Freedman
Petah Tikvah, Israel
..... and it's worth noting that the given name Bendet or Bendit is
ultimately a shortened form of Benedict. Benedict is Latin for "blessed"
(i.e., it actually translates the word Barukh) -- so the double-barreled
given name Barukh-Bendet should be quite common.
