I don't like Eugenia so much, it just sounds kind of plain, but I love Eugenie. I like Genie as a nickname.

The name Eugénie was very popular in France in the beginning of the 20h century, died down by the 1940's, and was revived in the 80's, though it is still not nearly as popular as it once was.

The French pronunciation is incredible! I love it! I'm very glad to see this name is still in use in France :)

Eugenie Danglars is a character from The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.

She's a smaller character but a very memorable one! Absolutely a favourite character of mine!

This name is so cute, but it reminds me of eugenics, (and comes from the same root) and that kind of ruins it for me.

The French pronunciation is gorgeous, but the English pronunciation is dorky and awkward.

This name is incredibly beautiful, though I prefer Eugenia. The French empress Eugénie was gorgeous, and so is the British princess. I hope that French people use lovely names like this more and forget about foreign names.

Hmm. I've always heard it as yoo-GEEN-ee (I stressed the wrong syllable in my other comment.) I like it pronounced either way, though. =)

I've always heard Eugenie pronounced "yoo-JAYN-ee" in English.

A cool, spunky name that I didn't like at first, but it grew on me. In English, though, it's spelled without the accent mark and pronounced YOO-geen-ie.
