I actually really like the name Buxton, though I associate the name with the beautiful ocean town in North Carolina's Outer Banks. This town is home to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and whenever I hear this name I think of a tan, surfer kid with long blond hair. I don't associate this name with the word Buxom because you can pronounce it Bux-TON or Bux-TIN. I think this would make a cute name for a little boy.
