Thanks for the kind words, Lucia
Here is some background info:
There are records of Eugeneia
being used in ancient Greece (see the online "Lexicon of Personal Greek Names") whereas Eugenia
is more "modern" by greekl standards, i.e. 3rd century :-)
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).
Wikipedia has info on the St Eugenia
is also the name of a plant and an asteroid.
Congratulations on your recently-acquired and very Greek-looking bust :-)
