Benefit: Desiring a Kunyah

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Imām al-Bukhārī mentioned in his ṣaḥīḥ: Chapter of Kunyahs for Women:

On the authority of ʿĀishaʾ (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhā) who said: “O Prophet of Allāh, will you not give me a kunyah?” The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) replied: “Take the kunyah of your son (ʿAbdullāh ibn Zubayr)”. So she was given the kunyah: Umm ʿAbdillāh (al-ʾAdab al-Mufrad, pg. 851). 

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalī (raḥimahullāh) notes: In this ḥadīth, we find the permissibility of desiring and requesting a kunyah by those who have children and those who do not. This is due to the honour of possessing a kunyah.
