Well, in fact it's pronounced "Eesh-tvun", which was the name of King Saint István, one of the most important kings in Hungarian history, and the "founder" of our state.

In Hungary many men have this name. What makes it ugly? It's not.

I think this name is very ugly. I wouldn't name my child so, even if someone would pay me for doing so.

I don't think that any name could be ugly. Maybe you feel that it's very uncommon in your region or hard to imagine this form in you language.
