Eugene m
English: from the Old French form of the Greek name Eugenios (from eugenēs well-born, noble). This was the name of various early saints, notably a 5th-century bishop of Carthage, a 7th-century bishop of Toledo, and four popes. The popularity of the name in Russia is due to the cult of a 4th-century missionary bishop who preached in the Crimea and southern Russia. In Western Europe, the name owes its popularity at least in part to the fame of Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663–1736), a general in the service of Austria who co-operated with Marlborough in defeating the French forces of Louis XIV. He was noted not only for his brilliance as a commander, but also for his strong moral principles. In Ireland the name has been used as an Anglicized form of EÓGHAN (SEE Eóghan) and AODH (SEE Aodh).
Cognates: French: Eugène. Italian, Spanish: Eugenio. Portuguese: Eugěnio. German: Eugen. Polish: Eugeniusz. Czech: Evžen. Russian: Yevgeni. Hungarian: Jenö.
Short form: English (esp. U.S.): Gene.
