ANTON as a name has its roots in ancient Greece. It comes from the name ΑΔΩΝΙΣ (aδonis). Adonis was an ancient Greek mythological character. He was the beloved of godess Afrodoti.
The Romans took the name and made it Antonios. After that it travels through the world as a Christian name. There was the christian saint Megas Antonios who died on 17th of January 356 and this is the orthodox christian namedate celebration.

I would be proud to name a son after Anton Lavey, founder of the church of Satan. To me it's very handsome sounding and commands respect at the same time.

In Swedish, and presumably Danish and Norwegian as well, it's pronounced as: an-ton, like the an from "an apple" and "ton" as in the weight, so it's harsher than the English.

This is much nicer than Anthony, which I find rather boring. I gave it to the main character of a book I'm writing about the Russian Revolution.

Anton. Like the main charecter from Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko, which by the way was one of my favourite books. But his full name was Antoshka Gorodetsky.

Actually, Writingmuse, I believe - please correct me if I'm wrong here - that "Antoshka" is just the familiar form of the name Anton. So I think it's actually Anton Gorodetsky.
