Possibly derived from Astarte, the Greek Goddess of war, fertility, fire, victory, vengance and sexual prowess.

This name is odd, but something about it appeals to me.

This name sounds hideous. It's merely a bastardization of the beautiful name Ishtar. Not only that, but Ashtoreth was used by the ancient Hebrews to mock the Babylonians. It also sounds demonic.
