Augustus Gloop, Augustus Gloop,
The great big greedy nincompoop.
It reminds me of Augustus McCrae from Lonesome Dove.
Love it if not that Augustus (Octavian) Caesar ruined it...
I instantly think of Augustus Gloop from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory." Is it just me, or...?
Very cool name, since it means: venerated and that gives it a regal feeling. In addition, I was born in August too.
I love this a middle name and possibly a first name, but I really dislike the nickname Gus. Gus takes the name from regal to ugly.

Augustus is a fine classical name that preserves the transcendent magnificence of Latin. Shame on the tools who fail to witness splendor of a better age.
Ugh, I hate this name. Augustus sounds so gross, like the word "disgusting." Augustus Disgusting. But "Gus" is a fine name. :)
I honestly like this name and want to name one of my boys Augustus. It is uncommon, unique, as well as noble and true. It also reminds me of the character from The Fault In Our Stars, a John Green novel.
It's a cool name. It might take a while for your young one to spell it out, but it's very royal as well.

An honorfic title give to people who were beloved by Rome or royalty. The female namesake is Augusta, with the exception of Augustus' daughter Julia, who was Augusti. One of the most famous bearers was Gaius Octavius Thurinus (Later Gaius Julius Caesar Octavius Thurinus, when adopted by Julius Caesar) who became Caesar Augustus when he was made emperor of Rome. By doing this he made his daughter Julia Caesaris "Julia Caesaris Augusti" (A namesake of his own adopted name). Other such barers are mainly members of his family, including his wife Livia Drusilla (Julia Augusta), his sister Octavia Minor and much later Julia Drusilla (Caligula's sister), Milonia Caesonia (Caligula's fourth and last wife), Agrippina the Younger (Claudius' fourth and last wife), Poppaea Sabina (Nero's second wife) and their daughter Claudia Augusta.
I think this is one of the most beautiful male names in the English language. My son is named Augustus (for my grandfather), and my uncle, one cousin and great-grandfather all had the name as well. It is a name of strength and venerability - I do believe that helps give a child a good start in life. Use it!
