EUGENE.  English form of Greek Eugenios, meaning "well born."  Usage: America, Australia, Canada, England, France (Eugène), Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

... the Italian Eugenio, that high-spirited Savoyard, growing weary of lingering at the court of Louis XIV., and hearing himself called le petit Abbé du Roi, rendered the sound of Prince Eugène dear to Austria and England; terrible to France and Turkey.  Foe as he was, it is to his fame that the great popularity of Eugène in France is owing, whilst even in the country for which he fought Eugen is far less common...
