I am a female with this as my middle name, except it is pronounced o-goost-a. It's definitely odd to have it as a name, but it's pretty.

Auguste sounds more refined and handsome then plain, simple August. It has a classy air to it.

Auguste is very old-fashioned and not given anymore. It reminds of Philippe-Auguste or of the clown Auguste. So it's either pompous or slightly ridiculous.

Just because it's an old name doesn't make it pretentious or ridiculous.

Luxsword's information is incorrect. Auguste is still used, and it's actually rising in popularity in France. I know a few young Augustes.

I agree with one of the previous posters, this name does sound quite old-fashioned. It can also be used for females.

This name is also used in Germany, where it is strictly feminine. It's a (actually more common) variant of Augusta.
A famous bearer of this name was Kaiserin Auguste Viktoria - known as Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein in English -, the last German Empress and Queen of Prussia. [noted -ed]

The name Auguste was extremely popular in the early 1900's, but began to decline in the late 50's. It has been receiving a small comeback since the 1990's.
