My mum's middle name is Eugenia. We pronounce it the Spanish way - Eh-oo-HEN-yah. It's funny to say.

I think it's a harsh and ugly name like Eugine. I met a girl who's about to be fourteen with this name. I wonder what she thinks of it.

I actually rather like this name for some weird reason. Fair enough, it is very old-fashioned, and the people who name their daghters Eugenia today are probably elitist snobs, but I like it all the same. I'm not nostalgic of the old times when this was a common name, but it has that old-fashioned, sophisticated elegance to it. A girl named Eugenia could always go by Jean, which may be dated itself, but is still quite common as a middle name, even if for rather unintelligent country girls. Or, she could go by Genia or Ginny. I won't use a variant of a name that has been the name of saints and popes, but I like this feminine name.

This is my second-favorite girls' name. It's very beautiful.

My mother's middle name is Eugena, though only on one official document. It has been misspelled on a variety of birth certificates as Eugenie, Eugenia and even Eugene. She wishes her mother had spelled it Eugenia.

I like it. Not a name I would use, but for some reason it appeals to me! I'm fond of it.

Pretty name, but tough to pull off.

My husband's grandmother was named Eugenia, and it's likely we will use this name in some way if we have a daughter. She was a poor, hard-working woman in the Philippines, and we are hardly "elitist snobs". There are a variety of reasons for choosing names and making assumptions about people's choices is pretty obnoxious.
