This may sound weird, but while I love Thorston/Thorsten in English, this name strikes me as too surname-y and annoyingly elitist and pretentious.

In England, "Thornton" is mainly used as a surname. The only place I have actually ever seen this name being used, as a first name, is in the Sims 3 ("Thornton Wolff").

I'm starting to really like this name but it sounds way too elite to use in real life.

Pretentious, but strangely charming. When you see the Thorn in there it's also a bit scary.
