Meaning:Well-born; Noble
From the Greek to the French and across the seas to England, Eugene is certainly a well-traveled title. The boy's name means “well-born” or “noble,” making it a prestigious appellation for your new addition. Eugene was most popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, making it an ideal name choice if you want baby to carry on the legacy of a Eugene from another age. Although the name has dipped in the charts until now, with many traditionally elder-affiliated names on the rise, Eugene might just be the perfect classic title for a baby with a trendy twist.
