What do you think of the name.....

What do you think of the name August for a boy?
It doesn't matter if YOU would use it... it's not a common name anymore, so I assume most people wouldn't choose this name... but if you met a child with the name... what do you think?

  • Have you seen the movie August Rush??

    I like it for a girl, but not a boy.

  • I have a relative with this name. Wasn't too keen on it when he was named that, but it is very "normal" now and we don't really care anymore one way or the other.

  • Not a personal favorite. There is a boy up the street named August. They call him Augie. Not the nicest kid on the block, but I doubt it has anything to do with the name (he's allowed to run wild.)
