The shortened name contributed to the popularity of the phrase, which died out and then regained usage in the 1980s.

Meaning of Gordon Bennett

Gordon Bennett means: interj Christ. By this I don’t mean that Britain is under the grip of a strange new religion where Jesus Christ has been replaced by a man called Gordon Bennett, who came to earth in the guise of a used car salesman to save humanity from eternal damnation. No, I mean more that this is a general-purpose expletive, used in a similar context to “Christ!” or “Bollocks!”: Your brother Tommy’s won the lottery! / Gordon Bennett! Its source lies in the mid-19th century with James Gordon Bennett, son of the founder of the New York Herald and Associated Press (who was also called Gordon Bennett, in case you thought this was going to be simple). Born with cash to spare, Gordon Jr. became legendary for high-roller stunts and fits of notoriety including urinating in his in-laws’ fireplace, and burning money in public. His name entered the lexicon as a term of exclamation for anything a bit over the top.

Meaning of gordon bennett

gordon bennett means: Expression of surprise/disbelief. Probably a "concealment" of the Cockney expression "Gawd (God) Almighty". Possibly (but doubtful) also the name of the first British footballer to land a contract for more than a million pounds. John R. writes: I agree with everything about your entry except the provenance of the word. I know a lot about football and the 1st million puond player was Trevor Francis, I have never heard of a player by the name of Gordon Bennet. Besides which, it is a very old expression pre-dating anything like that. This was sent in by Matthew Hill: I remember using the phrase Gordon Bennett quite often in the seventies and eighties whilst I was at school. My mother still uses it occassionally, so I can only surmise that it was a character who was famous at the time. However, there is a Gordon Bennett Memorial Hall in Thurcroft, South Yorkshire (my school was in Dinnington, South Yorkshire) which was built in the mid-eighties. Who it is named after I do not know, but it may provide another launch-pad for further research! (ed: So we still don't know who Gordon Bennett was. Has anyone got any more ideas where the expression came from - or why it originated?)
