From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Augustus
    the cognomen of the first Roman emperor, C. Julius Caesar
    Octavianus, during whose reign Christ was born (Luke 2:1). His
    decree that "all the world should be taxed" was the divinely
    ordered occasion of Jesus' being born, according to prophecy
    (Micah 5:2), in Bethlehem. This name being simply a title
    meaning "majesty" or "venerable," first given to him by the
    senate (B.C. 27), was borne by succeeding emperors. Before his
    death (A.D. 14) he associated Tiberius with him in the empire
    (Luke 3:1), by whom he was succeeded.
