English: from a medieval personal name, Bence, Benz, derived from Old German Benzo. Possibly also an Americanized spelling of German Bentz or Benz. French: from Benzi, an Italian form of the Germanic personal name Bandizo. Hungarian (also found in Slovenia): from a short form of the old ecclesiastical name Bencenc, from Latin Vincentius.
