Ben's name should be bean

Pro

The Negative Agrees. It is settled. All people called Ben will now be Called Bean

Con

This is not correct. Humans have then rights to choose their names and do it. The law never says that that Ben's should turn to Bean. Then why is there Ben Franklin instead of Bean Franklin? Therefore I am correct and you are wrong.

I disagree.. Ben has more significant meaning, it means "son of". So Benjamin (originally written Ben Jamin) means "son of Jamin"...Whereas Bean simply mean bean.

As a person with the name Ben, I agree with this statement. I would like everyone to call me Bean from now on because beans are pretty cool.

Bean Franklin would have been an awkward name.
