I've sat upon the setting sun, but never never, never never, I've never wanted water once

I think that Fraser doesn't hate being called "Ben", so he doesn't correct people who do it. The people who care about him seem to call him "Benton": his father, for one. I think Quinn does, and Frobisher. I don't remember what Eric calls him, I'll have to go back and rewatch that episode (which I've been thinking about doing for a while now, actually).

The people who don't care about him, or don't know him well (Victoria, for one), call him "Ben". So my theory actually holds water. *g*

One of my favourite fics is Denise Raymond's All the Comforts of Home. I've always liked that Ray calls Fraser "Benton" here, and then I find out in the prequel that he does it because Fraser explicitly told him to. *loves*

I also like to think that Ray likes Ray calling him "Benny" because it's what his mother used to call him, although Fraser doesn't really remember it consciously. :)

And yeah, last names can definitely be as endearing and gentle as first names. X-Files fans can attest to that.
