    I watch True Blood and have read the Sookie Stackhouse books, and one of the main characters is called Bill Compton. So, for me, the name is strongly tied with that. I like the sound of it. If it is a family name or has special meaning to you, I think it works.

    From Wikipedia,

    "Since the 1980s, the city of Compton was popularized in American media due to many hip hop groups and rappers originating from the community, such as the gangsta rap group N.W.A, who are best known for their debut album, Straight Outta Compton, and are widely considered one of the seminal acts of the gangsta rap sub-genre. The city of Compton as well as southern Los Angeles County in general is notorious for its heavy concentration of gangs and gang violence, such as the Bloods, the Crips, and Sureños, which all originated in the Los Angeles area."

    I would say this is not a good name...

    Edit: Just to clarify, not a good name because of the gangs, not the rap.

    makes me think of the song California Love by Tupac Shakur.
    Compton was a city that had a lot of gang activity and violence. not a name I would want for my son.
