I like Master August's names.   
I like the fact that Queen Victoria's husband's full name was stated: Francis Albert Augustus Charles Emmanuel.     
How many people know that Prince Albert's first name is Francis?

I did not know that, and I too was surprised. The name probably comes from his paternal grandfather - Francis Frederick Anthony, Duke of Saxe Coburg Saalfeld.

I found a couple of other instances of August/August while nosing about the Saxe Coburg's :

Albert's mother was Louise Dorothea Pauline Charlotte Fredericka Auguste and her father was Emil Leopold August.

Lady Liebe, We have certainly learned a lot about the names of ancestors from Saxe-Coburg.

Well I find August not quite to my liking. It is an old but not really fancy name. In Germany's south the name used to be quite popular up until the mid of 20.cen. - all of those poor dears suffered the nickname Gustl - imo the epitome of "bäuerlich" rural farmboy..
Also anybody remember Gussy the goose?
Hawke is great, one of the many manly names you find in those romance novel, in which the guys have names like Hawk, Hunter, etc... Angel
In any case I love the name Philipp, for it's sound and for the sweet nod to Gramps...

August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

Absolutely, totally adorable.

https://www.instagram.com...lpuK/?igshid=8yp70gn13fj6
I love Philip as a name in general and the node to her grandpa is asbolutely sweet (and expected), but I don't like August at all, it sounds very strange to me and it also seems very old fashioned - for being the first name of a kid, in 21st century.

My first thoughts when hearing August were the same.

Another 'August' born this week:

"...Actress and singer Mandy Moore and her husband Taylor Goldsmith have their first child. It is a boy who has been given the name August Harrison. Moore announced this on Instagram on Tuesday...."

I think you’ll find these sorts of names making a big comeback, especially amongst the upper circles August will go to school with. It’s a natural progression from the Arthurs of a couple of years ago.

August is a very, very powerful, serious and substantial name. (May I say, much more so than Archie or Archewell. )

So true Hester.

And this baby will have a strong and loving family behind him. Unlike poor Archie, who only has......

Here's hoping Philip rallies soon to meet his newest great grandson, and namesake!

Is Gus short for August? Not crazy about August but I love Augustus. No matter, the baby is adorable and I wish them well. Also sending positive vibes to Prince Phillip for a quick recovery. Am presently the newest biography by Ingrid Seward. Very interesting so far, he has been the queens greatest support and has done a superb job.

Gus is a diminutive for August or Augustus.

And to refer to the post about Mandy Moore’s baby, she has already referred to him as Gus on instagram.

Either Gus or Augie would be diminutives of August.

ETA: MM also posted today about how they came up with the name. I wonder if she has been accused of copying Eug?

Wait, Mette Marit knows about the origins of the name or do you mean someone else with MM?
