"This is my husband's name and I LOVE the name Augustus. However, he goes by the nickname "Gus" and that has taken some getting used to. We've known each other for 12 years now and I'm pretty much adjusted now!!" Aug. 31, 2007:

"Hey, that's my name! I go by 'Gus', but mainly because 'Augustus' is kind of a mouth full. ...that's what she said." Mar. 9, 2010:
"The middle name of the American aviator Charles A. Lindbergh was Augustus. Born in 1902, Lindbergh became the first American pilot, whether man or woman, to fly solo across the Atlantic from New York in the U.S. to Paris, France, in 1927, two years before marrying Dwight W. Morrow's daughter Anne, who later became an author and aviatrix in her own right. I feel sorry for what happened to the Lindberghs' first-born when the boy was taken from his parents in the Thirties and then murdered - and it was called the "Crime of the Century" (the supposed abductor and murderer Bruno Richard Hauptmann, illegal immigrant from Germany, was arrested in 1934, tried and found guilty in 1935, and executed in 1936 but in recent years there have been arguments that Hauptmann was not the killer but the innocent victim of a frame-up and to this day it seems like one of them terminally unsolved murder mysteries. Hauptmann's wife Anna always thought he was innocent but few others did)." May. 17, 2008:
"Seems to be making a comeback nowadays, although there is Augustus Gloop in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (or the 1971 film Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder as Mr Wonka). He is the first golden ticket finder and the first bad kid, a greedy pig, to be booted out of Mr Wonka's factory for leaning too far out in the chocolate river, only to fall in and get sucked up the pipe - to be rescued by the Oompa-Loompas singing "Augustus Gloop, Augustus Gloop, that great big greedy nincompoop", although by then the once-fat kid Master Gloop had been would this time round be as thin as straw. The one chocolate no-one would dare eat is "Augustus-coated-chocolate-flavoured Gloop", as Mr Wonka said when Master Gloop's fate befell the little lad." Apr. 27, 2008:
