Thanks for the kind words, Lucia!
Here is some background info:
There is also a difference in the accent: eygenIa vs eyGENeia.
Both are legitimate Greek names, though I know several Eugenias but no Eugeneias. The former is pretty popular, and its nameday is on Dec. 24.
The original version (Eugeneia) meant of of "good / noble origin / heritage" (from eu- and genos). In modern greek, eugeneia means "politeness, nobility).
Congratulations on your recently-acquired and very Greek-looking bust :-)
