Can I have some feedback please? Last name is Hughes.

For a boy? The one I know is female.

Not keen personally.

I know an Asher (lovely boy), but never met an Ashton. I'm afraid it makes me think of Ashton Kutcher and by association The Butterfly Effect and kids blowing up babies

I taught a class recently with three in so it's quite common, but if that's not an issue it's a nice name with good shortening potentialsmile

I've just thought, if it gets shortened to Ash, he'll be Ash Hughes... back to the drawing board! Lol.

Google Chris Ashton Saracens & then decide.

What's wrong with Ash Hughes...?

Bit like "issues" maybe or "atishoo"?
Ashton is nice, and what about Ashley? (Or even Oakley? grin). I know someone called Ashley Hulme - he gets called Ash but very rarely would friends calling him Ash actually also use his surname. We didn't call DS2 Gabriel because our surname starts with a B (e.g. Brown) and I worried that Gabe Brown sounded like Gay Brown... wish we'd used it in retrospect - nobody using the abbreviation is going to say the surname. If you like it, go for it.

Asher is gorgeous and in a different league to Ashton, which to me is a bit of a fad.

Bless you

I've known three little boys called Ashton now and they were all lovely.

I like it but agree it is a little sneezy.

I dislike the town but it's a nice name as long as you are not celebrating the place of conception.

Well I like it

YY Ash Hughes - Atishoo! At least you noticed now rather than later op.

I know a woman with a son called Ashton. I'm sure the child is perfectly lovely, but she is horrible, so it's put me right off the name.

I went to school with an Ashtdon (spelled like that confused) He'd be 29 now. Put me off the name for life.

Ashley Hughes sounds better.
Sorry, Ash Hughes, Atishoo ☹️
