LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
Eû GEN- ‎/ GíGNOMAI > EUGéNIOS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
Eû ‎(εὖ) GEN- ‎(γεν-) GíGNOMAI ‎(γίγνομαι) EUGéNIOS (εὐγένιος)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Eugénios (εὐγένιος)”, composed of two elements: “eû ‎(εὖ)” (well) plus “gen- ‎(γεν-) gígnomai ‎(γίγνομαι)” (to come into being, to be born, to become). In turn the name means “well-born, well come”. The name was not very common in Western Europe during the middle ages and its use was intensified later thanks to the fame of Prince Eugene of Savoy. Prince Eugene of Savoy was one of the most successful military commanders in modern European history, rising to the highest offices of state at the Imperial court in Vienna. Born in Paris, Eugene grew up around the French court of King Louis XIV. Blessed Eugenia Smet (1825–1871) founded the Society of the Helpers of the Holy Souls in 1856. Her feast day is 7 February. Pope Eugenius I († 657), also known as Eugene I, was pope from 10 August 654 to his death in 657. He was a native of Rome, born to one Rufinianus.
