I think the name is nice. And I thought the picture was cute.

I'm so happy Eugenie and Jack shared a photo of their family, so sweet. Other meanings of the name of August are sacred, respected and impressive. It's a fine name.

Little August Philip Hawke is expected to do his job now. Eat, sleep, cry, keep his parents up for a late night feeding and a walk about the nursery and give them a present every so often in his nappy. He is just fine.

The couple posed under a picture of Prince Albert on their wedding day.

I wonder if August is pronounced like the month or the more European 'Or-goost'.

I didn't realise Eugenie's pronounciation until her wedding :)

I have never heard it pronounced like that.

Sorry perhaps it's more "ow-gust". Was just wondering.

Handsome name.

I think the first syllable of the name is emphasized and pronounced to rhyme with Corgi and York.

August Philip Hawke Brooksbank looks absolutely, Snugglepot, adorable.
How lovely to see a picture.

His name reminds me of great artists and fine minds. It is a very European choice.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Auguste Rodin, August Strindberg, August Horch,

Lucky number eight is associated with August. His Aunt Beatrice, of course, being born on 8:8:88.

He is an adorable baby, and it's a nice family picture.

Wonder where they will have the christening?
St. James? St. George's? Kensington Palace?

St George's chapel Windsor perhaps would be an wonderful choice seeing as the wedding took place there.

So nice that Eugenie (and Jack) are doing the Royal thing, and letting us share in their happiness. They have not kept us waiting for the name, and we have a delightful family photo of them and their baby.


On the pronunciation of the name! I find I can't just say it in the English way of stressing the first syllable (Awe) and then swallowing the second (gst) - Awe-gst. I am swithering between the two European ways - ow-goost or awe-goost. Hmm.

Has there been any mention of Jack's parents and their happiness about Master August?

I also like the name Augusta for a girl.

Yes as is custom, the Brooksbanks were included in the official statement.

Quote:
The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.

Or if they are just having a small family baptism due to covid they could do it at Sandringham where Eugenie herself was baptized.

St George's chapel is a bit much for a royal baptism (even a normal one and covid small, are private and not large occasions). Even George who is the future king was baptized at St James, which is far smaller then St George's.

Wouldn't the Royal Chapel of All Saints be the perfect location? The queen and duke of Edinburgh might even be able to attend if regulations soften...

I have to say, that is an adorable baby and I'm so thrilled that we got to see so many lovely pictures of him along with his parents. As for his name, I kind of love it. I'd never in a million years have predicted it (other than Philip, I did predict that along with so many others here) and I don't think I'd ever have chosen August for my own children but as a historian, I adore the historical links. I'm so thrilled that Eugenie and Jack really pulled deeply from their own family histories for his name and I think it was a beautiful gesture to include the DoE. It certainly does give a renewed interest in the lovely wedding photo of Jack and Eugenie alongside the portrait of Prince Albert. I wonder if this name might have long been on their short list even before their marriage?

August(us) was also the name of the first Roman emperor, as well used as a title for the following emperors. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augustus

Maybe the venue will depend on where they are living?
When the lockdown ends, will they remain at Frogmore Cottage, or return to London?
Will Eugenie keep her job? Lots of things to consider.
