When her maternal leave ends, she will return to the job, like all working mothers in the UK and all over the world.

The name August is a unique name, not common and can be used in girls and boys apparently. I was watching an old interview clip of the South African actress Charlize Theron, then she mentioned her daughter named August; and I was "oh, where did I hear that name before". If it wasn't for E&J's baby, maybe I wouldn't have remembered Charlize's daughter's name.

Or she will stop working and become a stay-at-home mom, doing some charity things (As, may I add, many mothers all around the world)

We simply do not know about Eugenie's plans. And there's nothing wrong with staying home after one has a child.

And there is nothing wrong either with returning to work after having a child if a mother chooses to do so...

When a woman stays home to care for her children, it's a mess of different careers piled into one. Nurse, diplomat, chauffer, teacher, chef and probably a lot more I'm not thinking of at the moment. Long hours, big rewards.

Eugenie will do what she feels is right for her and her family.

Of course not, there is absolutely nothing wrong with returning to work as well! I was just disagreeing with a statement that all working mothers come back to work, as I'm sure all the families make decisions based on the wellbeing of the family, weather it's returning to work full time, working part-time or staying home with their child.

Princess Eugenie may stay at home for quite a while. Eventually she may return to work. However, when she returns, she may first work for a short while. Then as the weeks and months progress she may increase her work schedule.

We also know that Eugenie, like everyone else in the UK is entitled to 39 weeks maternity leave at 90% of her full-time salary (unless she earns less than £151.20 per week) so she has plenty of time before having to make her decision about working or staying at home or a mix of both.

I also like that it is evocative of his mother’s name, with the “U” and “G” sounds...a link they will always share.

The names don't sound alike though. While they have common letters, the way the letters sound are not the same.


She is U-jenny basically.



August is more Aw-gust.

Love that clip of Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes bickering (like a couple) on how to pronounce Princess Eugenie, before Chris Ship entering the conversation looking a bit fed up and confused! I cannot stop watching that clip especially looking at Chris Ship's face when he walked in

According to a Telegraph article, her name is pronounced as "yoo-juh-nee" with emphasis on the "yoo". Princess Eugenie reportedly told The Telegraph that she used to tell foreign people who were struggling to pronounce her name that it sounded like "Use Your Knees". But then Eugenie is not too bothered and got used to the mispronunciations.

Princess Eugenie: Little Princess Sunshine
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/fea...-Sunshine.html

The Town & Country has picked up some of the content from The Telegraph

Back in a 2008 interview, the Telegraph reported that her name is actually pronounced "yoo-juh-nee," with an emphasis on the "yoo."

When the 28-year-old royal spoke with the Telegraph she didn't seem to be too bothered as she's gotten used to the various mispronunciations. "Whenever we used to meet foreign people who were struggling with it, my mum and I would help them by saying, 'It's like Use Your Knees.' But whatever. I am now used to every pronunciation," she told the publication.

She also made note of the fact that many of her friends call her by the nickname "Youj" or "Bouj." Eugenie's name is particularly tricky when you take into account that other members of the royal family, including her sister Princess Beatrice, have fairly simple names.

It's about time we started saying it right.

I think August will be pronounced in the same way as British English to make things easier. If not, I hope there is some sort of rhyme (like "Use Your Knees") to make me pronounce correctly
