Mrs. Bennet's First Name

What is Mrs. Bennet's first name? According to someone at Yahoo Answers, it is Blossom, which the respondent says Mr. Bennet used quite a bit. Who knew? LOL

P.S. Someone on meryton.com just informed me that Mr. Bennet calls Mrs. Bennet "Blossom" in the 2005 movie. I'll have to rewatch it now.

  1. I have no idea! I've actually never given this much thought. Blossom, you say? Well, that's a first for me.;) I hope someone confirms this, I'm interested now.
    I figured it might have been Jane, since her first daughter's name was Jane, and wasn't it the habit of naming the first child after the father/mother?

  2. That is so funny! Yes, Mr. Bennet in the 2005 movie calls his wife Blossom. But it is a term of endearment, I suppose. Did any of these people have first names? Mr. & Mrs. Bennet, Lady Lucas, Mrs. Gardiner, etc?

  3. I thought it was really funny, too. Blossom as a name in the early 19th Cent! I think Mr. Gardiner's name was Edward, but that may be another of those film or TV adaptations that I now have in my head.

  5. I truly thought it was Fanny. Just like Mr. Gardiner is Edward? Madeline is Mrs. Gardiner? I don't know did I miss something?
