    It's good but not my style. I think I prefer just August, but I like the nn Gus for either. I think the popularity is on the rise but not to the point that you'll hear it everywhere

  • I think Augustus Gloop. Even without that association, it's "too much" to me. I like August better.

    I agree with @MamaWren919 I think of Augustus Gloop.
  • I prefer August but I'm partial to that with my dad being named August. He is nicknamed Augie though. 
  • I prefer Augustus over August! Don't like the name August at all!
  • I like Augustus, too. Might help avoid kids possibly picking on him for having a name the same as a month. 
  • I have a friend who named her 2nd child Augustus. They call him Auggie. Her first child is named Sullivan, nn Sully. 

  • I like Augustus a lot and I have no idea who/what Augustus Gloop is.

    @pebbledam he is a character from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The little german kid who eats everything and gets sucked into the pipe after falling into the Chocolate river.

    That's immediately what I think of too when I hear Augustus. "Augustus... save some voom for later."

    Same, I know this name gets a lot of love on her but I really don't like August.
