I like Gus by itself, but I don't think it works well with a last name that sounds like "Fox," only because they both end in that soft S sound ( Brad Pitt, Jude Law, etc, all end differently and so sound more structured). However, I think Gus would be a cute nickname for any name beginning with or containing a G. Who says it has to have the -gus syllable? Plenty of nicknames are pulled from one letter of a name.

I like Gus too, but not August or any other long forms. So I'm with you!
I don't see why it's a problem, as long as it's not a weird combination or the letters run into each other, or it creates an unfortunate rhyme or something. I'm partial to longer names, myself, but I don't think it's mandatory.- current loves -
