八月 is the month of August in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

八月 literally mean "eighth month" or "eighth moon."

In Japanese, this can also be the female given name, Yatsuki, in much the same way August can be a female given name in English.

奧古斯特 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name August.

This sounds like "August" but has nothing to do with the month of August in Chinese.
