Meaning:ash tree town
Ashton is a gender-neutral name of English origin. Meaning "ash tree town," it's more commonly used as a boy's name but is every bit as lovely when it's used for baby girls. Ashton was originally used as a place name in England before becoming a given name. A lot of its popularity can be tied to actor Ashton Kutcher, as it began to skyrocket once his career took off, and it's showing no signs of going out of style.
