I like this name. It reminds me of someone who would be strong and responsible.

I think of Eugene as being a smart, intellectual name, but not necessarily nerdy. Personally, I know a Eugene who is big, strong and definitely not nerdy. The name suits him well. I think people are just afraid to use this name today.

I like the name Eugene. Although I would use it as a middle name rather than a first name. It makes me think of a mature, smart (not necessarily "nerdy") and brave man.

It's not the worst name out there, but it is very old-fashioned. Just in case someone happens to have the name today, it would be funny if they made an album titled Eugenious. The sound of it would be a pretty funny pun. Too bad the music would surely be crap, ha ha.

Eugene Maurice Orowitz. He's probably better known as Michael Landon. He'll probably be remembered for ever as Little Joe (from Bonanza) and Jonathan (from Highway to Heaven). Too bad he's dead. He was a great guy, I hear.

The two things that come to mind when I hear this name are Eugene Meltzner (from Adventures in Odyessy) and the Pink Floyd song "Careful With that Axe, Eugene". If you are at least a little familiar with both, then you will know that these are completely unsimilar usages of the same name.

I have to admit that I laughed when I found out my tall, muscly P.E. teacher was called Eugene. But now I don't find anything funny about the name. I love the feminine form, Eugenie.

The name Eugene is okay, at least you can get the nickname 'Gene' out of it, which is cool.

I lived in Korea for a couple years and this is considered a beautiful girls name there: Yoo-jin. I could see this become a unisex name in the future in the west.

I will always associate this name with the nerd from Grease and the klutzy kid from Hey Arnold. Not the worst name in the world, though.

I knew a male Eugene who went by the nickname Geno (pronounced like Gene + oh). I've also known a Korean family that named their son Eugene Yoo-jin, because the two names sounded similar so their son could use the former in the United States and the latter in South Korea.

I used to live in a city named Eugene, and I can't say I'm a fan of it. It grew more polluted and crowded by the day! If I ever heard someone with this name I would groan.
