  • It's okay. I don't like it for little boys/young men so much, but when they're older it's "cute" - I used to volunteer in a nursing home and we had the sweetest resident named August, called him Auggie. But it's your baby, your decision, if YOU like it that's what matter, not random annonymous opinions on the internet!

  • I think it's a very nice name. ...although i know two women with the name August. The only time I've seen it for a boy is when that movie came out.

  • No. I have a hard time picturing a grown man (even a little boy) named August.

    What about Augustus? I know a boy named that, they call him Gus for short.

  • Love it for a middle name b/c that is my grandpa's middle name, well one of them, lol..... Eddie Lee August Steve ________, but he's in his 80's so it is also kinda dated, but everything old is new again!

  • The only Augusts I've ever known were girls. I don't like it for a boy.

  • I don't like it, it isn't really unique. I like unique names. It all depends on what you think in the end.

  • DD is August Ruth, and most people have only ever heard of August for a boys name. Obviously I'm bias but I love the name :)
