Etymology of the name EUGENIUS.
Meaning of the baby name EUGENIUS.

  

EUGENIUS.  A Scottish Latinized form of Eochaid (q.v.), meaning "a horseman or knight." (Chambers's Miscellany of Instructive & Entertaining Tracts, 1869).  This name is mentioned frequently in the early roll of Scottish kings.

EUGENIUS.  Latin form of Greek Eugenios (q.v.), meaning "well born." 

... St. Eugenius was an African Confessor, and another Eugenius was Bishop of Toledo in 646.  Both these gave much popularity to their name; the first in the East, the second in Italy, where Eugenio came to that high-spirited Savoyard who, growing weary of lingering at the court of Louis XIV., and hearing himself called le petit Abbé du Roi, rendered the sound of Prince Eugène dear to Austria and England; terrible to France and Turkey... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
