Dear All,
My references suggest that Beines or Benis is a version of Bendit
(Benedict) which is Latin for blessed and is a kinnui for Baruch. Your
great grandfather's Hebrew given name is probably Baruch.

Dear all,
My great grand father's given name was Beines,also spelled Benis or
Benes.
I never meet with this first name in the jewishgen,yad vashem and so on.

What are the origins of this name?
Is it a yiddish given name?
What is the equivalent hebrew name?

Sincerely .
Christine Usdin, France
