I thought I wouldn't like it because I generally don't care for either of those names on their own (no negative reason, just a personal preference). But I have to say, I think they sound pretty cool together! The flow works very well. It's quite a southern and spunky combo, and I love the way you're honoring Gus. =]

I'm not a fan of the name. It makes me think of two things, neither of which I would want to saddle my child with. 1) to me "Duke" is more of a dog's name. Kind of like Marmaduke. 2) Duke is also a title, and especially with the middle name "Augustus" it makes me think of World War I Prussian royalty.

Personally I dislike titles and the name Duke, but I know it has more history of use than 'Queen' or 'Viscount' or whatever, and I like that you've grounded it with a more traditional middle name. My issue with it is, like PPs, it sounds like you're describing a duke because of the MN Augustus, which was often used by nobility/royalty. Specifically (me being a royalty nut) it makes me think of the old Duke of Sussex
How about honouring using Angus? I think August Duke or Angus Duke would work much better
