Eugene Name Meaning
French (Eugène): from the personal name Eugène (Latin Eugenius, from Greek Eugenios meaning ‘well-born’, ‘noble’). This was borne by a 3rd-century bishop and martyr, who gave the personal name some currency during the Middle Ages. In some cases it may also represent an Americanized form of a Greek patronymic family name of this origin, for example Eugeniadis or Eugenidis.
