I'd never come across this name before this site, but I love it. It's a shame it's so close to Aster, which means it would probably sound feminine to most people's ears. Nonetheless, a very kingly name.

John Jacob Astor was a famous millionare. I think he died when Titanic sank.

I believe that John Jacob Astor was a fur trader who founded a fort near present-day Astoria, Oregon.

John Jacob Astor was in fact a fur trader, and his great-grandson was John Jacob Astor IV, a the wealthiest man aboard the Titanic who died when it sank, like xKatiex said.

There's a little girl named Astor on the show Dexter that's aired on Showtime.

I've only ever heard Astor used as a feminine name. I think it's good on both sexes, but I find it a little more feminine sounding.

The Scandinavian/Old Norse form is Asthor, meaning AS: Old Norse for GOD and Thor: the God of war and thunder in Nordic Mythology.

Nice name, nice meaning... but it sounds like "ass-tor," which I couldn't deal with.

This name sounds old fashioned to me, but I like the name 'Aster' (as in the flower that means 'star') for girls.

To me Astor sounds a bit like Esther.

The surname Astor can derive from English (via Old Occitan), German, and Icelandic. See
