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.

My name is Eugenia. I'm from Greece and here the name is quite well known. I got it from my grandmother. It is a custom here for the first child to be named after her/his father's parents. Kind of an old fashioned way to name your children, but I like my name and at least for now no one has ever told me anything negative.

My mother, great grandmother and niece are named Eugenia. We are of Greek ancestry and in our part of Greece, it is customary for the firstborn daughter to be named after her maternal grandmother and the firstborn son is named after his paternal grandfather. As the previous person commented, Eugenia is a popular name in Greece and among descendants of Greeks abroad.

I don't know why, but I rather like the name Eugenia. It's pretty, and not very common in the United States.

I'm a little surprised no one's mentioned Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan from "The Help", a book by Kathryn Stockett. She's a wonderful bundle of contradictions - she's a 23-year-old white woman in the early 1960s South with a cotton trust fund and a college degree, she lives at home on her family's cotton plantation (Longleaf), and she devotes herself, at considerable risk, to a book featuring the real stories of the black women who work for the white families in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. Emma Stone plays her in the 2011 film based on this amazing book. I highly recommend it!
