"My name is Eugene. If my memory serves me right, it's of Greek origin, meaning well-born or noble." Dec. 11, 2010:
"Eugene was my father's name. He was born in 1934. He generally went by Gene. The name means "good genetics" and he really did have good genetics. I always thought it was a great name, sort of exotic. My dad was very creative and a bit arty, very strong and energetic. He had many, many wonderful qualities and he was a really great dad. I named my oldest son after him--Zackary Eugene. We like it!" Feb. 5, 2010:
"Not a very common name these days, but I like its somewhat uniqueness. It was my grand fathers name, jumped a generation, and I have it now. Pronouncing it was not an issue for anyone, but spelling was a different story. I could only expect that because its not as common as others. I can only recall of meeting one other person with my name, but clearly its more popular then that:)" Apr. 22, 2007:
"I have a friend named Eugene but goes by Trey because i guess it's just too embarrising for him." Oct. 3, 2006:
