"Gus" is often a contraction of Auguste, a very common French name.

It could be, but the French name for Gus is Gustave. It has somewhat a
similar sound. If you take the G out of Gustave you have "Ustave" and that
would sound similar to Eustache as you would pronounce "Us-tach" in French.
that's like "ous"
in curious"
