The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Benge has been recorded under many different variations, including Benger, Benyger, Beniger, Beneger, Bengar, Benniger and many more.

First found in Gloucestershire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.
