I don't like this name. It reminds me of the arrogant and narcissistic singer Elton John.

This would actually be a pretty cool name if Elton John hadn't ruined it. The name would automatically make people think of him, and while the guy certainly is a good singer, he strikes me as an annoying male diva.

A really nice name but it will never escape the Elton John association (I do like Elton John, I just mean it's sort of a one-person name almost, there aren't really other celebrities with the name and it's not very commonly applied to other, nonfamous people).

This is a really nice name. My cousin is named Elton, so I don't associate this name with singer Elton John, but with my cousin. It has a really nice ring to it, it sounds really strong.
