This name sounds like that one greedy nerd at school.
Not a terrible name, though.

My husband is called Eugene, he's not one bit girly, a total man's man. He's the furthest thing from a nerd I know.

I assume that "well born" refers to one's ancestry, but would not it be ironic if Eugene was a C-section baby?

I probably just dislike this name because it's always used in popular culture as a name for the annoying nerdy guy, but still. Ick.

Eugene is a very common name in Korea. And the funny thing is, here we regard 'Eugene' as a girl's name. It's totally girly! If you see a male have this name, we get a awkward feeling like as if a boy have a name like 'Lily' or 'Olivia'. And like I said in the beginning, it's a very common name so you can see this name often. I also have lots of friends who's name is Eugene like Eugene Han, Eugene Bak, Eugene Jo, Eugene Jeon... and so on. They're all girls, of course. :) Although it's common, I liked this name very much cause It sounds pretty.
And one day I saw 'Tangled' and I find it so cool that Flynn Rider's real name is Eugene! I was quite surprised that foreign countries use a name 'Eugene' too (I've never been abroad) and at the fact the name suits a man very well. So I searched the name, and that brought me here. It's still interesting to know western countries use this name for boys though.

This is my brother's name. I think it suits him really well, and it's an excellent name. It sounds cultural and classic, yet friendly and approachable. We call him "Euge" (rhymes with "huge).

I really like this name! I don't know why but it reminds me of someone who is quiet, strong and tall. I'd love to meet a man named Eugene.

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.

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.

This name derives from the Greek words: εθ-γενιος. The second component means: family, gender and not birth. Birth in Greek is γεννα, verb γεννω and the spelling has double n.

From this same Greek name: Eu-gene derive the genes of DNA.

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 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.

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

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.

He may not be a real person, but fans of the TV show "Spongebob Squarepants" will be familiar with the red crab character Eugene H. Krabbs, owner and proprietor of the Krusty Krab restaurant and creator of the Krabby Patty.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
