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.

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.
