Benvenuto m
Italian: from a medieval given name meaning ‘welcome’, composed of the elements bene well, good + venuto, past participle of venire to come, arrive. The Italian metalworker, sculptor, and writer Benvenuto Cellini (1500–71) is one of the most vital and engaging figures of the Renaissance, and the name may in some cases be bestowed in his honour, although parts of his autobiography are far from spiritually uplifting. The meaning of the name has remained transparent, however, and in the majority of cases it has no doubt been bestowed as an expression of the parents' joy in the birth of their child.
