I voted for Augustine (even though my son's middle name is Austin). As a teenager, I promised my grandfather, August, that I'd name a son after him someday. As it turned out, my husband would not agree to August, and I settled for Austin instead, since it has the same origin as August. (As you probably know, Austin is a medieval short-form of Augustine, derived from Augustus.)
Anyway, I prefer both the name itself and the flow of Augustine in your combo.Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane. All middle names honor family, with Jane used three generations in a row. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve).
