Personal experiences with the name Gus:
Our son’s name is actually August, but we call him Gus. Everywhere I go-people stop me and say,”Did you just say Gus? OMG!!!! That is sooooo cute!!!!” We get it all the time. We know several little guys (5 and under) with the name. It must be another of those ‘old’ names that are making a comeback….
