Most people have nicknames throughout their life, whether they're given to them by their parents or choose them for themselves. For example, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie has been called "Arch" in the past, while Princess Beatrice previously revealed her nickname for her younger sister Eugenie is "Euge."
So what nicknames could Princess Eugenie's first child be called? The name August is typically shortened to Gus or Auggie, so it would make sense that the royal may use these monikers behind closed doors.

Baby August Philip is named after Queen Victoria’s consort Prince Albert, who had Augustus as a middle name. Prince Albert is August’s great-great-great-great-great-grandfather.
Philip is in honour of Eugenie’s grandfather and August’s great-grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.
Eugenie also shared a post on her Instagram Stories, which read: "On his grandfather’s birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy. He is named after his great grandfather and both of his great x5 grandfathers."
