Subject: What do you know about Evgenia as a Greek name?

I haven't been able to find much out about this yet.

BtN says it's the Modern Greek form of Eugenia, and it wasn't on the Top 20 list Pavlos just posted (super interesting list, btw!).

Some questions I have:
1) Does "Modern Greek" have the same connotations as the "Modern English" names on this site?
2) Is Eugenia or Eugeneia a better bet in terms of legitimacy as a Greek name?
3) Does anyone know how common it is in Greece (or just in general)?
4) Know anything about the history of the name, or its history of usage?

I don't really know where to go to find more reliable information about Greek names, so I figured that here might be a good place to ask.

I'm mostly just asking because I really love Evgeniya and Yevgeniya, and am trying to find out about its other forms, but I've just acquired a very Greek-looking bust. It got me thinking about Evgenia.

I'd be grateful for any information!
Thanks very much!
