Author Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve (28 November 1695 - 29 December 1755) used this name for the main antagonist of her most notable book, Beauty and the Beast.

The name Gaston is also used for the Tritagonist of the British Animated Series, Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom, in which Gaston is a Red, Black-Spotted Ladybird who resembles the qualities of a Dog, for example: He barks, pants when he's happy and loves fetching sticks.

Gaston Bachelard (27 June 1884 - 16 October 1962) was a French philosopher. He made ground-breaking contributions toward the field of poetics and the philosophy of science, the latter of which he introduced the concepts of epistemological obstacle and epistemological break.

A famous bearer is Gaston Doumergue, President of France from 1924 to 1931. He was very popular as a President and was named by the French: "Gastounet". He was also famous for his native accent of southern France (looks like an italian accent).

Pretty cool name, but everyone's going to think of the Disney character.

The name Gaston was pretty popular in the first 2 decades of the 20th century in France but became rarer and rarer after the 60's. It has been receiving a small comeback since the mid 90's.

Omg Wilted that was the best comment ever. I was going to say something like that :')

I know a Gaston. Then again, I spend a lot of time in France. Although I don't think it would do well in the English-speaking world.

It sounds nice, but it makes me think of the arrogant guy from Beauty and the Beast, thus it will lead to teasing. I wouldn't use it.

More recently, the name of Franny's older brother in Disney's "Meet the Robinsons." First Disney character with this name since the villain of "Beauty and the Beast."
