Aston is such a fresh version of the beautiful name Ashton. Ashton has always been one of my favorite names for a boy and Aston is a slightly more unusual version of the name. If you live in conservative cities, maybe stick with Ashton as some people might not be able to get their head around the name Aston as it may be too modern for them. I also think of the car Aston Martin, which is a super luxurious car which is also featured in the James Bond movies, so that's a pretty cool name for a boy. And it's not pronounced with a long A like ASS-ton. It is simply As-ton or As-ten, which is lovely.

I do like this name quite a bit, it's familiar but not very popular. I don't see it as pretentious, but unfortunately the way I pronounce is to clearly articulate -as(s) and that's what I initially hear.
