nickname for a man who displayed those characteristics.
Early Origins of the Benigni family
Sicily (Italian: Sicilia), the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The name was found early on in all parts of Italy, though it is especially common on the island of Sicily, where its most common form has always been Benigno. This form of the name is also common elsewhere in the southern part of mainland Italy, whereas the variations which end in "i" are more common in the north. The name means "benign," "friendly," or "harmless." The name therefore probably originated as a nickname for a man who displayed those characteristics.
