Ben-Oni, which means "son of my pain," was the origional name given by Rachel to her second son, as she was dying. Ben-Oni's father, Jacob, changed his name to Benjamin (Gen. 35:18).

Although he was the second son of Rachel, Ben-Oni/Benjamin was actually the 12th son of Jacob, who had children by other women.
