Benda Early Origins



The surname Benda was first found in Silesia, where this family became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the family became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. The name comes from the Slavic short form of the name Benedikt, and became common throughout the eastern German-speaking regions.
