    I don’t think Augustus is too much for a baby and I quite like the name, however I too have a stronger attachment to August. Like PP said, you can always name him Augustus, but call him August.

    I feel it is a bit much, but that is because it is buried too far in the Roman empire for me that I can't see it ever digging its way out. Oddly, Augustine does seem more wearable to me.

    I love both! Augustus is adorable on a baby. This maybe isn't a good association but it reminds me of the mouse from Cinderella. It's sweet and playful. August has a different vibe--more serious and beautiful. It's a tough choice! Would you be okay naming him Augustus but calling him August?

    I prefer August. I love a lot of -us names but Augustus just doesn't do it for me.

    I prefer August, Augustus seems a bit heavy to be wearable for me.
