Can't decide. Both have meaning, but don't want to use both, so need to pick.

Not keen on either but Hayden is the better one.

Forgot to say that it would be a middle name.

I prefer Hayden.

I like August - it's a bit unusual (though an August could be Gus for short), but as a middle name I think it's nice, particularly if it has meaning to you. I had a Swedish friend who was considering August as a first name for her DS.

Love August - it's a very strong, distinguished name but also very cool. Hayden is not my cup of tea.

August is a good name.

Why not both? Hyphonate it.

I prefer August.

For some reason I like Aidan and Hayley but not Hayden confused

Definitely August for me.

August is super cool. Love it.

August. I don't like Hayden.

August is beautiful and was second on our list for a boy

Another vote for August.

August if it is for a middle name, provided the initials don't spell anything weird.

August I think.
