What's in a name?

Answer to yesterday's question:

C) Believe it or not, Dr. Denison's prejudices clouded his mind to the point that he participated in the tarring and feathering of Joseph Smith in March of 1834, 28 years after he delivered the Prophet into this world. He had a role to play at the tarring. It was the Dr. who supplied the poison that was administered to Joseph. Dr. Dennison was also to perform an "operation," but his hands were trembling to the point that he could not hold onto the knife.

The Saints waited many years for the completion of the Salt Lake Temple. As the day of the dedication drew near, Emma Bennett's desire was to attend the sacred ceremony. Living in distant Provo, her family and friends did all in their power to stop her, but to no avail. The fact that she was due to deliver a baby at any moment was not going to halt her from attending the dedication. Sure enough, her infant son entered this world within the walls of the Salt Lake Temple during the dedication ceremony. A week later President Joseph F. Smith (counselor to President Wilford Woodruff) gave the child a name and a blessing inside the Salt Lake Temple. What was the name the child received?

A) Joseph Smith Bennett
B) Joseph Temple Bennett
C) Porter Rockwell Bennett
D) Joseph Lake Bennett
