Austonio is an unincorporated community, formerly a city, in Houston County, Texas, USA.
The community, originally named Pearville, was established before 1900. In 1930 the community sponsored a contest, asking participants to select a new name for the community. Ruth Tucker submitted the name "Austonio", a combination of Austin and San Antonio; the name was chosen as the community's new name. Austonio has an estimated population of about 40.
