I read this name in Beowulf when I had to read it for high school, and I thought it was cool, even though he was a minor character. I could see this name on a boy, teen, and man. He could go by Stan if he wanted. I also really like just about any name ending in -an, so that was a plus.

Bonstan (also Beanstan) is the father of Brecca in the epic Beowulf. I can't find anymore information about the name.
