Meaning:Exalted, venerable; To increase
Gussie is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin. A fun spin on Augustus, which comes from the Latin word augere, it means “exalted,” “venerable,” or “to increase,” setting up baby for sweet, sweet success. While Augustus once belonged to many monarchs—the first Roman emperor may come to mind—Gussie’s got a few notables of its own to inspire your newest addition. You might even recognize the name from one of P.G. Wodehouse’s most iconic fictional characters. There’s no guessing your little one’s greatness with a name like Gussie!
