This is one of the very few names I honestly do not care about what other people think. August, Augusta, Auguste- great names, love em. Absolute guilty pleasure.

August is becoming increasingly popular for boys, so I don't see why Augusta couldn't make a comeback for girls. I admit it sounds a bit elderly, but the nicknames Aggie and Gus could make it more approachable. I also love the association with Lady Augusta Bracknell, a character in my favourite play, "The Importance of Being Earnest".

I can see this name making a comeback, as well as the names Harriet and Edith. Be prepared: I bet Augusta will be the next new trend!

I adore this name, I'm going to use it as a middle name for my first born daughter. (If I have one) After the month both my mother, myself and my deceased twin sister was born in, I'd find it funny and sweet if she was born in August too.

My middle name is Augusta. I hate it but it's a middle name so it doesn't really matter. My parents met in Augusta, Georgia and decided to make that my middle name... creative.

What a serious but lovely name; genteel and sophisticated. I was all set to add this to the short list of girl names until I had a thought: A-gust-a wind. And that was that for Augusta. Too bad.

Like it's said in one of the above comments, this name was already borne by King George III's mother, as well as his elder sister (who was, by the way, mother to later queen Caroline of Brunswick). But yeah, Augusta was probably only popularized by George III, since he was the King (as opposed to a 'mere' prince and princess of Wales).

Of course, I know it is the capital of Maine, which is a beautiful state that I adore, but I had never actually heard it used as someone's name until about 10 years ago. It seems crisp, light, and welcoming; or maybe that's my thoughts about Maine creeping in. Either way, I love it.

This is a beautiful, strong name that should be used more often! The fact that it's a royal name should be enough to use it for some.

Ha this is my name. I actually like it; I've never heard of another real life Augusta, as the name is extremely unusual for my age group. I'm not sure what my parents were thinking. My siblings all have normal(ish) names. I'm just glad to have the last name Leigh. Nothing else really seems like it would go with AUgusta. I think I'll keep my maiden name forever.
