Ewan/Euan to honor a Eugene?

[name_m]Can[/name_m] [name_m]Ewan[/name_m] or [name_m]Euan[/name_m] be used to honor a [name_m]Eugene[/name_m]? Are they related or is it too much of a stretch?


They aren’t etymologically related, if that’s what you’re looking for (i.e. don’t come from the same source). I’d say it’s a stretch, they don’t even sound all that similar to me.
But if you think it’s an honor, then I suppose it’s an honor :slightly_smiling_face:

They’re definitely not related in in origin or meaning but they do have similar sounds and obviously the same first letter so I think itd be a nice way to honor a [name_m]Eugene[/name_m] with a modern name.


I think the [name_m]Euan[/name_m] spelling visually makes sense


Meh if if it isn’t [name_m]Ewan[/name_m] [name_u]Gene[/name_u] is a decent name and Egg is a cute nickname for a little boy.
