History

The village was founded in 1949 by immigrants from Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland and Romania, and was initially named Yavne HaDromit (יבנה הדרומית, lit. Southern Yavne) due to its location south of the town. However, later after a process of metathesis of the word "Yavne" the name was changed to Bnaya, named after "an officer under David" mentioned in 1 Chronicles 11:22, a member of the tribe of Simeon (1 Chronicles 4:36) dwelling in this area.
