I caught a Rufflet for Marshal and named it Fetherface. I know it's spelt wrong, there wasn't enough room. Besides, I like that better.

use a psychic type and if youve already beaten the league once then you can get a musharna in the dreamyard

just caught a roggenrola and named it Rocky.....kinda lame

I name my pokemon based on their species' first letter in their name. But if it starts with a z or something that's difficult, I make a random pick

I nicknamed my krookodile Cookie, but I might change it to Kakarot, goku's other name in DragonBall z

Not sure whether to name my Darmanitan Maka, Destroyer, or Hulk Smash. C: I like all three! She was originally named Maka, from the Darumaka I caught her as, but now she's a powerhouse so I like the the last two.

I named my snivy Queen Ivy, but I'd like a male to name Malfoy or Dr.Sniddly. I love how snivy's eve line looks, they're so cute!

Am I the only who who named my Cofagrigus "Grimhotep"? It seemed to be a pretty popular fan name, so I doubt I am.

20th March 2011, 9:17 AM
I totally named my Litwick "RuPaul", for obvious reasons.
Anyway, most of the nicknames I give my pokemon are entirely random. For example, I named my Pidove "Widget", and my Audino "Buttons". They just sounded good at the time.

I caught cobalion and i nicknamed it 'Arondite' cause of the famous sword Lancelot used. not sure if i spelt it right, but thats what i put.

PsychoIncarnate
20th March 2011, 11:15 AM
Snivy - Eden
Tepig - Rotisserie
Oshawott - Myrmidon

I wish I had thought of naming my Reuniclus Jello, that's nice. I hadn't thought of a good name for it.

My favorite, Naming my Female Hippowdon "Opera", because it's not over until the fat lady sings...

Fusion_Blastoise
20th March 2011, 12:05 PM
Krookodile = Darkodile [He's dark... and I hate saying Krook]
Samurott = Sharpoon [Have you seen his horn? seriously...]
Haxorus = Axesorex [Similar to the original but I like this better]
Stoutland = Spot [He's a dog... come on]
Escaliver = Lancargot [Lance from Arthur myth + escargot (french word for snail)]
Accelgor = Ninjility [Ninja + agility]

I sorta named mine after the Greek gods of mythology:

Garchomp = Ares
Typhlosion = Astraeus
Espeon = Artemis
Togekiss = Aether
Ampharos = Apollo
Milotic - Aphrodite

FiremanLV5
20th March 2011, 1:09 PM
My team up until the Elite Four:

Samurott - Revolver (Soooo original)
Braviary - Ezio
Zoroark - Finn (Named after my dog. I had a Lillipup with the same name earlier in the game but I didn't want to evolve it and realised how much it'd suck balls if I didn't so it got replaced)
Victini - Nike (The goddess of victory, not the shoes xD)
Zebstrika - Ixion
Fraxure - Absinthe. Later replaced by Cobalion - Curacao

Now I use Zekrom instead of Zebstrika, but can't decide what to name it yet, and a Flareon called Disaronno instead of Victini because aaallll my friends are using Victini and I wanted to be different.

Hey guys, I have been getting a few PMs about wut to name your Lillipup/Purrloin so here it is:
Lillipup: Whatever your dog's name is
Purrloin: Whatever your cat's name is

Nothing could be much simpler than that and it makes you really attached to them :D

I think that Shogun is quite fitting for a Samurott,it is a well used name i think.Nickname for my samurott,Me thinks.

Poke_Mania97
20th March 2011, 2:49 PM
for reshiram i will call it Blue Eyes and Zekrom Red Eyes. If you know about the dragons in yugioh then u will know what im talking about!

Carnax
21st March 2011, 2:15 AM
Okay, here's a couple of the nicknames that I'm using on my team:

My Shiny Hydreigon is going to be called AbyssHydra, Hydra obviously being a reference to the fact that he's based off a hydra, and Abyss being a deep, dark chasm from which no light can escape from (at least, that's what I know an abyss to be)

My Chandelure is named OnibiWight, with Onibi referencing the black spiritual flame which is the japanese equivalent of the Will-o-Wisp, and Wight being a type of ghost

My Sigilyph (mother from Dream World), will be called NazcaTotem. The totem part is because in my opinion, it looks like it could disguise itself as the very top part of a totem pole, and Nazca is in reference to it's relation to the Nazca Lines

This is the first generation I've ever nicknamed pokemon and I'm pretty proud of my choices so far.

Emboar - Hamlet
Armani - Leavanny
Poirot - Jellicent
Mozap - Blitzle
SuedeShoes - Simisage

Roll
21st March 2011, 1:35 PM
I'm glad to see another person that's a Christie (Or Poirot) fan, WeWereGiants! I also named mine Poirot :P. From what I've seen, most people like to name their Jellicent 'Pringles'.

My two reserves' nicknames are :

Alomomola - Evangel
Minccino (Still need to evolve it) - Amica

Azulart
21st March 2011, 3:27 PM
Current White teams has these nicknames:

Serperior - Lezard.
It has Leaf blade, and has leftovers as held items.. they all start with a L
and the name itself is just cool, it fits with dragon pokemons .

Volcarona - Millenia
If i recall, Millenia has something to do with the sun and holy grounds.. not sure though, but i found the name fitting her.

Haxorus - Axel
Simpel but cool, not only a cool kingdom hearts character, but also the name of a heavy strong weapon (Axe) so yeah.

Carracosta - Laguna,
Carracosta kinda reminds me of Costa rika and that made me think about Laguna,
(Also because i just like the name very much.)

Minchi Cinccino
21st March 2011, 3:42 PM
Most of my nicknames are based around the Pokemon's name. Lilli for a Lillipup, Piddy for a Pidove, Reshi for a Reshiram, Teppy for a Tepig, and Minchi for a Minccino.

My SS Groudon nickname is Grimmible

はるひ
21st March 2011, 7:03 PM
Ah! I explained Silver, Cloudy and Black Doom on the other page in this thread, but my team changed by three so I will explain their names now.

My Vaniluxue is named Swirly (Jp:Yojireta よじれた). When I got him on cold storage he reminded me of a ice cream cone and the the top of his head was in a swirl, hence the name Swirly.

My Gothetelle, I named her Amy Rose (Emi Rozu エイミーローズ). Mainly because she kinda reminds me of a rose. And I like the name "Amy".

Lastly, my Lampet I named Kendell (Kenderu ケンデル). It sounds alot like "candle".

Lorde
21st March 2011, 7:09 PM
Well I'm doing a Nuzlocke Challenge on my sister's White version so I've had to nickname my Pokemon there. I have a Dewott named "Wotter". I named it after Oshawott's old fan-name since it sounded cute. There's also a Swadloon named "Cassidy". I gave it that nickname since I remembered another cocoon Pokemon (Cascoon). I have a Pansear named "Mittens". That name is a reference to how it appears to be wearing kitchen gloves. My Blitzle is named "Ebory" which is a combination of the words ebony and ivory. Yeah, dumb names.

Carnax
22nd March 2011, 1:47 AM
okay, I already explained three of my Pokemon's nicknames prior, now to go for the other three:

My Leavanny, named SilkThorn. The silk part comes from the trait that all Leavanny share, which is to use their silk and shredded leaves to make clothes for Pokemon. The thorn is in relation to her grass typing, and the old phrase "Every rose has it's thorns" which is true for SilkThorn, as she's very kind and caring, but can strike hard if needed.
My Zebstrika, which I nicknamed IxionIndra. Obviously, the first part is in reference to the FFX summon of Ixion (though I suppose it was partly inspired by Ixion in the greek mythology too), and the second part was inspired by Indra, the god of storms.
Finally, we have my Mienshao, FatalCesti. The Fatal part is mostly inspired by her ruthless nature in battling, and Cesti is a reference to the type of weapon she would best excel at using.

Zebstrika - ZERO (what with the "Z" n'all =P)
Krookodile (soon) - GRIMLOCK (transformers ref. FTW)
Escavalier - MOONKNIGHT (character from marvel comics)
Scraggy - NOODLE ( 1.gorillaz 2. looks like such a noodle pulling its skin up like that haha)
Samurott - OSMOSIS (no idea why but osmosis jones popped in my head LOL probably more fitting for Reniclus)

emute
22nd March 2011, 4:48 AM
I was never good at nicknaming pokemon so I only name a few..

Samurott (at the time Oshawott) - Wottle
Simisear (at the time Pansear) - Pansy, I really disliked her for some reason...
Kyurem - Fudge, he just looked like a Fudge to me:3 he's so adorable..:]

I think that's all I nicknamed... I know lame...

We name them based on the people that we know and whom we thought that might look like or how they behave look like the person.

Awesome, I'm a huge Christie fan, I grew up watching/listening to Miss Marple and Poirot.
Pringles is a cool name but it doesn't really make much sense? But then again not many names do.

mewichooseyou
22nd March 2011, 7:55 PM
Named my Snivy "Sniffles". Thought it was cute and also because it shared the same first letter. That's what I usually go by.

I think my best one was naming my Teddiursa "Ted Hoards". Just seemed really funny to give it a last name too. :)

D-World
22nd March 2011, 8:00 PM
I nicknamed my
Samurott: "Kensei" because of the Samurai Hero.
Musharna: "Strawberry" because I had a pig called Strawberry.
Simisear: "Jerome" because it was the best name I could think of.
Excadrill: "Digby" because of "Dig"
Whimsicott: "Fluffy" because he is.

Also, whenever I catch a Chinchou, I can't stop calling it Cheese for some reason.

Vodka Haze
22nd March 2011, 11:01 PM
I nicknamed my Carracosta "Duchamp" because the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were named after artists, so I named mine after Marcel Duchamp, after his views on aesthetics and his 1917 piece called "Fountain".

Tyranitar Terror
22nd March 2011, 11:05 PM
Squitle (from heartgold) is called Biugi because it was an error in a mystery dungeon game and it kind of stuck.

Lillipup= Kenobi. It's the name of my dog and I thought Lillipup sounded stupid.
Male Jellicent= Pringles. Obvious.
Durant= Kevin. Named after Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA team.
Magikarp= Magicrap= Crap instead of Karp

Pokemom
23rd March 2011, 3:09 AM
Joliett (Vanillish) comes from Joliet, the town in Illinois where Dairy Queen began.

This one is truly inspired..one of my favorites from this thread ::nod nod::


Hot Snort, heh. Called my shiny Tepig BossHog



pansage: oregano



Serperior - Kudzu
Carracosta - Nautilus

LOVE it :D Kudzu had me rolling off the couch



iGetEaten:Simisage

Oregano, Kudzu, iGetEaten O_O ::HOWLS LOL::



Current Team Examples:
Tepig I named Boarbeque after both the hilarity, and a YouTube playthrough-er.
Zoroark is Zoro because it was cute for a little Zorua and also works with its PokéName.
Beartic is Polaris because of "polar" as in cold, and Polaris is also a star in Ursa Minor.

More merriment :D I really like your North Star Bear ;)


Emboar-Manbearpig.
Carracosta-Blas2ise.(Figure it out)

Lovein' 'em! Wonder if the two waters are egg-compatible?



Swanna - Odette (main character in Swan Lake)


Swan Lake and Swan Princess...<3



Huey the Ducklett

Other Pokemon I have used also include:
Zubat the Swoobat, and

That swoobat needs a new name if you have any thought whatsoever of using it at any Sanctioned event....and I may steal that Donald Duck idea for my Swanna ;)



Karrablast = Screw You
Because it looks like a wrench. :D



darmanitan - tang

More that might nailed at an Event (under the Obscene/Offensive clause)..if you have to ask "why tang?" go ask your parents to explain it :P



Emboar: Pokabu
Japanese name for Tepig, like the sound of it.




Golem (golurk) if you cover gobett's head and think of the diamond as a head it looks like an old favourite


I know these two will get pegged...can't use an official poke specie name as a nickname



-Hikozaru the pansear. Hikozaru is chimchar's japanese name, and they're both weird-looking fire monkeys.

-Gay Andrew, the male unfezant. I named him after this kid in my history class that I affectionately call Gay Andrew. Gay Andrew would probably wear a mask like a male unfezant's. To class. Casually.


More likely event flags. The first for Official Name, the second for "offensive".


I still need suggestions for my female Zebstrika's new nickname. For those of you who don't remember, it used to be Shina, but then I found out that's apparently racist (God damn it, Google). It should have something to do with thunder, lightning, or light in gemeral, but I really want it to be unique at the same time.

Floride; old Latin-based name for Florida, considered by many (most?) to be the lightning capital of the world.



I think I like Levina best. I was going to go with Meallan at first, but I looked it up, and apparently, it's a male name. I'm off to rename her! Thank you so much!

I may take Meallan ("Meallen") for my male if no one minds


Gothita - Abby

Very nicely played!! I thought it looked that something that slept in a coffin ::snicker::


Nope

I sure did :D I'd be more suprised if people didnt do that actually


I know I caught a female and named it Faline.


I deliberately avoided naming mine Bambi, but I was hoping to use Faline dagnabbit O_O Oh well...Internet deer research here I come :P


sheepish edit: I guess I should include mine, huh?

Emboar = Barbara. Yeah, I scored a female Tepig. Named her for my middle school geography teacher....wait for it....Barbara Bacon :P
Victini = Voltaire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltaire)

wearjo
23rd March 2011, 12:26 PM

23rd March 2011, 12:47 PM
I nicknamed almost all of my team I realize, but some are homeage to their japanese names.
my oshawatt is named futachi, because I love his second form which is named Futachimaru. it means second wind, and I can just imagine the beastliness of wielding two shell blades.
Excadrill is named Drilleon. I like the eon in the eeveeltions names and added drill to it.
Swoobat is kokoromori which is her japanese name
Galvantula is named jolt because joltik reminds me of jolteon
Serperior is named Tarja from japanes name of first form (tsutarja/snivy)

and finally, Blazewolf, Shisa, and Wolfsbane are my new perfect speed iv gowlithe sons. BlazeWolf is named to pay homeage to his fire typing and wolf like appearance as an arcanine. Shisa is homeage to the chinese lion dog which arcanine is bases off of. it is a great protector, and Wolfsbane sounds cool, will look like a wolf, and is will be the bane of my opponent's existance.

Dr. Leggs
23rd March 2011, 12:55 PM
Named my Darumaka Dharmaku, as both a corruption of 'Darumaka' and of 'Daruma-kuyo', which is the festival of burning daruma dolls, a concept that predominantly inspired Darumaka/Darmanitan.

Kael Phoenix
23rd March 2011, 2:54 PM
just some of my nicknames as of yet:

Bisharp - Protoman, cuz,, look at him... the part steel typing didnt hurt

Zoroark - unsure actually at the moment wanted to call him Nyarlathotep, buuuuut... am open to ideas

Haxorus- Tyrfing, try to have a mithological weapon each game, first was mjollnir, a jolly metagross :P

throh- Ernie...

escavalier- Sir Will, hommage to heath leager, name from a knights tale

Pucca_ness
23rd March 2011, 3:13 PM
The names of my team so far.

Serperior - Dexter - Love the show do not like the name "Serperior" It feels like a rip-off from Rhyperior.

Zebstrika - Ixion - An obvious one if you've Played FFX. Name of the lightning elemental Aeon. It looks similar to a horse.

Carracosta - M'aturin - The turtle of enourmous girth from stephen king's the Dark Tower series. Now i question if the spelling is correct <.<

I have a Lampent waiting for a nick name. Not sure what i want to call it though although i think Poe is a good name! Edgar Allan Poe being a writer of creepy/dark poetry and Poes from Zelda? Yeah i think i nailed it there :P

When i get my shiny Haxorus it will need a name. Unsure of direction for inspiration. Perhaps i will take another character from a tv show. Don't know what gender it will be though when it eventually hatches.

Braivary, again need a name. Was thinking of Valefor as a partner for Ixion but i am unsure.

Littlemyuu
23rd March 2011, 5:33 PM
I always nickname my Pokemon. some of them sounds lame but i like it XD

I have never nicknamed a pokemon before but as soon as I saw a Durant on Victory road I had to nickname it Kevin because being a sports guy Kevin Durant. I just hope that there will be a second form of Durant in the future and for it to be named Durantula.

I nicknamed my newly caught Volcarona Nova because it's Pokédex entry. When volcanic ash darkened the atmosphere, it is said that Volcarona's fire provided a replacement for the sun.

My brothers name is Blake! He's living in New York now, and Unova is based on New York! How coincidental, not really.
That was sort of spammy, so here are my team's nicknames.

I trained up another Reuniclus (Bred from Jello) with Magic Guard because I'm so annoyed that Jello has Overcoat (Which is inferior to Magic Guard in every way).

Can't treat a pokemon that accompanied me to N and Ghetsis as a drone, so I renamed Jello "Mitosis" and named her offspring "Meiosis". Meiosis apparently has inferior IVs (Other than the passed down 30Spatk IVs and Nature from a random drone father XD), but well, I needed to get my Magic Guard Reuniclus.

Now I've got a beauty of a Lilligant with 31 Spatk IVs, a positive nature (Rash) and Own Tempo ability and am wondering what I should name her. Hopefully something elegant strikes me sometime. (Feel free to suggest, although I may not take them, so just suggest with a pinch of salt.)

I generally don't nickname my pokemon, but I'm currently trying to shorten down a very long name to be able to fit it as my nickname for my Galvantula. There's a fun story behind this:

My girlfriend hates Spiders (and so do I so I can't really blame her) but I showed her my Galvantula and she said, and I quote:

"That's not tat bad because the way his head and forearms are shaped he looks more like a kangaroo mouse two-tailed squirrel thing"

It stuck, so we now will forever refer to Galvantula as the Kangaroomousetwotailedsquirrel, which is obviously way too long to be a pokemon nickname, they don't give you many characters, so I'm working on shortening it in a way that the meaning is still intact but it short enough to be a nickname.

Servine - Chlorophyl (cuz you know... grass pokemon :P and I ran out of characters for the last L...)
Panpour - Fontaine (french for fountain)
Zebstrika - Tempest (storms, thunder and lightning etc etc)
Pidove + evolutions - Major (Idk I forgot why I named it this. I think pidove's puffed out chest just reminded me of a major or sergeant?)
Sandile - Faraday (named after michael faraday and his sand heaping physics :P)
Liepard - Jager named after one of bit cloud's liger customs in zoids hahaha)

I nickname all the pokemon I catch but these are just the ones that happen to be in my party atm :)

I caught a Durant today and named it Yellow. See, when I was really young (like 3 or 4), I once ran over this ant when I was riding my tricycle. I felt really bad about this, so I took the dead ant and buried it in its own little grave. I found a small stone and used it as the tombstone. I coloured the stone with a yellow crayon to mark the grave, and because of that, I began to call the ant Yellow.

Prancer the Zebstrika (I caught it as a Blitzle, immediately thought of Blitzen from Santa's reindeer and decided Prancer was a good female name)
Lance the Druddigon (No prizes for guessing this one xD)
Alicanto the Zoroark (I was going to name a Skarmory Alicanto because that's what Skarmory are based on, but I never caught one so the name went to Zoroark)

I also try to nickname Pokemon that i plan to have in party for a longer time. Then I usually nickname them what first com to mind, like i named my Vanilite Iris, cuz that was the first thing i thought of.

Eugenie the Serperior. These pokemon are just so regal looking, and since mine is a girl I wanted an appropriately regal name. I went with 'Eugenie', after the british princess.

Ruben the Volcarona. I loved the japanese name 'Meraruba' so I was going to go with Ruben if I had a boy, or Ruby if I had a girl. He came out a boy :3 It was only later that I realised I'd left an 'e' out...never mind.

Elizabeth the Munna. Elizabeth is my favourite girl's name of all time...I've been saving it for a very special occasion, and I catching my favourite Unova pokemon was occasion enough. She's delicate enough to pull it off, too.

Zsa Zsa the Mienshao. I wanted something cool yet classy, and thought of Zsa Zsa Gabor. It just really seemed to suit my pokemon! :)

Stef the Seismitoad. You caught me! I didn't plan this one through...I captured her, and her name just popped into my head. I deliberately named her with an 'f' isntead of a 'ph' to make it a bit different.

Milo the Hydreigon. Everyone names their dragons something heroic and uber-awesome...but I wanted to go with understated and cute. It was between 'Toby' and 'Milo'...and he seemed more a Milo when he hatched.

Wanted to nickname my Litwick "Montgolfiere", which according to Wikipedia is a type of chandelier, but the darn 10 character limit ruined that. Tried variations but they didn't have the same ring, so I nicknamed it "Noël", because I get a sort of French vibe from Chandelure. Also:
Musharna--Nous (a philosophical term for the capabilities of the human mind)
Golurk--Bezalel (A very famous narrative revolving around golems was written by Judah Loew ben Bezalel, a 16th century rabbi.)

Or if the Pokemon looks like a type of animal and that animal was in a cartoon etc I find nicknames that way..

Rabies/Swoobat - Bats get Rabies, right?

Herpes/Seismatoad - Snerk. Yeah...

Leprosy/Scrafty - His skin is falling off! (*shot*)

Hypothermia/Vaniluxe - Brrrrr...

Influenza/Simisage - Because...I don't know...shut up, that's why!


And some others:

Meningitis/Elgyem - Figured a psychic type should be named for a brain disease

Aneurism/Timburr - Hello! Look at his head! :o

Bird Flu/Pidove

E.Coli/Trubbish - Ewww! Food poisoning!

Tirtouga is Turquoise (although Tirtouga is not a light blue by any means, turquoise has "tur-" as its first syllable, like in "turtle," and it ends in "-oise," like "tortoise")

I'm totally loving yours. Turquoise is a great name, and so is Scar.

Liepard-Lieperd sounds better in an aussie accent

but other pokes are named after puns.

31st March 2011, 9:25 PM
lets see

Shiney Purrlion male - Deviant
due to its type and that is a devious pokemon

Zoroark - Zephrem
sorry a bit of star trek trivia creater of the warp engine lol as in he is warped

Empoleon - Torrent
due to its high pressure water attack hydro cannon

Emboar - Hyfestus
named after the greek god of forgeing weapons

Deoxys - Alpha-Omega-Delta
this is dependant on its form Alpha as in leader as its full attack
Omega as in last as defensive is really slow
and delta as is like Delta flyer (voyager) as in really fast

Celebi - Chronos
Usually used whan talking about time

Foongus - FunGuy
a play on the word used for describing mushrooms

Garbodor - Mildew

Zweilous--Omega (If you listed all the Pokemon in alphabetical order, Zweilous would be last. Omega=last letter of Greek alphabet. Not sure what I'll do when it evolves.)
It's funny you should name Zweilous after a number since the Deino line share the same thing as the three birds when it comes to their names.

Deino, Zweilous, Hydreigon - The bits in bold are one, two and three in German. Was surprised I had to have it pointed out to me.

I still cannot think of a good name for shiny Haxorus when it hatches.

Simisage is named Elvis because of the pompadour.
Meinshao is named Xiaolin, just because.
Durant is named Flick after the character of A Bug's Life.
Emboar is named Ganonpork because he reminds me of pig Ganon from Twilight Princess.
Gigalith is named Goliath because that's where I assume the "alith" part of it's name comes from.
Braviary is named Colbert after Stephen Colbert, the most Americanest person alive.
Haxorus is named Maxwell because it has "ax" in it.

I wanted to name Zebstrika Thunderhorse, after the Dethklok song, but it's too many letters. If I get a Golurk and Bisharp, I'm going to name them Elric and Ranger.

Named a Lervesta "Solcano" (Sol from sun + volcano, which is pretty much what it's evolved form's name means, anyway).

And I named Elgyem (or however you spell it) "L.E.N." (say it, and it sounds like "alien," a play on it's evolutionary line being called the spelled out versions of LGM/BEM).

Named my Tepig (now an Emboar) "Hogwarts" because that was the next "pig" name I came up with other than "Bacon" (which I didn't want to use).

Dude, that's what I named my Swanna. That was the first nickname to pop into my head when I first saw Swanna, actually. xD Very befitting name for her.

For the most part, I tend to name my Pokemon after favorite characters of mine or just other characters in general. If I fail to think up a character's name, I just start brainstorming for a nickname based on what they are or something like that.

My team nicknames include:
+Jake the Serperior (named after Rattlesnake Jake lmao)
+Vector the Krookodile (after Vector the Crocodile)
+Flicker the Chandelure (like how a flame flickers)
+Odette the Swanna
+Zappy the Zebstrika (yeah...couldn't think of anything better)

Some more Pokemon in my White version that I've nicknamed include:
+Flora the Lilligant
+Kitty the Liepard
+Bananas the Panpour
+Hearts the Swoobat

For my team on Black:
Wolfgang the Emboar: Seemed like a good name for a giant fire pig, originally part of a trio of names
Amadeus the Carracosta: Part of a trio of names, also could be used as a pun as "Armor"deus
Winston the Stoutland: Seemed nice and authoritative, fits the mustache I think
Madeline the Gothitelle: It just seemed to fit to me, plus I liked the name

For a "joke" team I would do this(For those familiar to the reference, its as close as I could get):
Ken the Braviary
Jun the Swanna
Jo the Mandibuzz
Ryu the Noctowl and
Jinpei the Swellow

Ive nicknamed some thru out my decade of Pokemon (I'm only thirteen and I've been playing for over a decade!) but not very many. But my favorites are

EMBOAR (that's Tepigs final form right? :p) is PIGLET ( it's just makes me laugh when I send out this huge Pig thing and it's got a name like Piglet)

SANDILE is KRIKEY like how Steve Irwin says

(SHINY) SNOVER is FROZZY (My brother's name is Foster and we call him Fozzy, it makes me happy because he's gone on a LDS mission for two years so it makes me smile when is see it.

(SHINY) CHARIZARD is TOOTHLESS base off of the movie How To Train A Dragon (he has flawless Speed IVs and he is Black).

Araleon
3rd April 2011, 7:34 PM
I'll do the current and future names for my team.

Oshawott/Dewott/Samurott = Nala from The Lion King. I named her that since her final form is based on the sea lion, and I had recently watched The Lion King.

Patrat/Watchog - Timon from The Lion King. Watchog is totally a meerkat. Look at it! Also, I had recently watched The Lion King...

Rufflet/Braviary - McMurphy. Named for Randle Patrick McMurrphy from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Vanillite/Vanillish/Vanilluxe - Finn. Named for Finn from Glee. He's kidna dopey and likes food. So he's named for my male Vanillish, who, in my head, is kinda dopey and is food.

Larvesta/Volcarona - Sirius. Named for Sirius Black from Harry Potter. It has a Hasty nature and is thoroughly cunning. It totally fits.

Druddigon - Fleur. The french word for flower, I think, but she'll be named for Fleur Weasley nee Delacour from Harry Potter.

Lopunny-Haruhi - Best name for the pokemon. Her nature matched her personality.
Emboar-Gannonpork - I beat OoT a day before I got White version.
Alakazam-Ness - I love Earthbound. I also use him as my Bolt Beamer. I know Paula had those moves but still.
Braviary-Freedom II - Now people will ask about Freedom I.
Absol-Squall - I wanted a character named after a Final Fantasy character. A week after catching though, I realized the Absol was a girl. I kept the name though.
Bibarel-Sero - I thought it sounded cool...

Krokrunch (crocodile, crunch) for a Krookodile
Shoalgion (shoal, shogun, lion) for a Samurott
Foxanery (fox, chicanery, trickery) for a Zoroak
Phylecare (Phylliidae, leaf, care) for a Leavanny
Homuncelus (homunculus, cell) for a Reuniclus

I didn't nickname my White team, but on my second playthrough on Black I did.

Serperior (Empress) - I bred a female just so I could call it this. It has that regal kind of look that made it fit well. The only NN that didn't start with the same letter as its original name.

Darmanitan (Dario) - Male. "Dar" in the beginning of both names. And Dario was a lot easier for me to say. Though looking back, Dario might have been a better for Darumaka only.

Eelektross (Elektra) - Female. Pretty self-explanatory. I didn't really like the "Eel" part in "Eelektross" as it made it sound a bit awkward. Elektra was simple enough.

Mienshao (Meng) - Female. I always preferred it female over male. Meng was the first Asian, fighting-ish name that came to my mind that also started with an "M".

Seismitoad (Simon) - Male. Yeah... had NO IDEA what to name it so this was the best I could come up with. Well, at least I got the "S" part right.

I just started a Nuzlocke Challenge, so I'm going to be giving my Pokemon nicknames for that. I obtained an Oshawott and I named it Joshua. It isn't a very creative name, though. It just sounds like Oshawott so I decided to give it that name. I captured a wild Lillipup and I named it Cane. I didn't really have a reason for giving it that name, but now that I think about it, it could've come from the word canine. Well anyway, I don't have any other nickname ideas planned, but I'll try and give my Pokemon names that sound like their original names. That's what I usually do, anyway.

I always name a pokemon after what ever i think of when I look at them:

Sigilyph: RuneSeeker;she looks like something that could be protecting something, like an autonomous golem that kills unfortunate explorers who wander too close to her ancient treasure.

Sawsbuck: Prancer; no explanation needed

Zekrom; RattleGore; an enemy in world of warcraft... don't judge

Carracosta: Cryto; a worked over version of kratos because an ancient pokemon should have an ancient name.

Bisharp: RepoMan; I love Repo! The Genetic Opera, so I named this pointy boy after my favorite character.

Emboar: FlameTusk; I initially thought that the fire came out of his tusks XD but i do like the name very much, anyway

Chandelure: Wander; named as a Litwick, because they lead people astray.

Zebstrika: SwiftRun; Because she's a swift runner, obviously :)

Stoutland: Chloe; named after my westie doggie.

Klinklang: MOE; Named after my robotics team, MOE 365, because our symbol is a gear :D

for the longest time I've worked Japanese into their names. So here they are

Hydregion (Kurogami) - 'Kuro' is Japanese for the color Black and '-gami' can mean graceful or regal, but it also sounds similar to '-kami' which means God or Diety. So, 'Kurogami' packages together all those threatening/dark/graceful meanings into a cool sounding name for a dark-type awesomely powerful pokemon.

Milotic (Venus) - pretty self-descriptive for the cultured. Venus was the Roman goddess of Love/Beauty so it fit perfectly. Also, the sculpture "Venus de Milo" (a sculpture of Venus) is pretty much the source of Milotic's name. ...de MILO -> MILOtic.

Serperior (Rick Root AKA Recruit) - It's a fairly obscure manga reference, I'll give a Moltres to anyone who can tell me which it's from.

Reuniclus (Regia Gel) - 'Aqua Regia' is one of the most corrosive substances known to man, it dissolves GOLD! for goodness sake. So since the solosis line looks like it's suspended in some sort of liquid named him this to make him sound really threatening.

I still have yet to think up a name for my aron that I'm planning to evolve into an Aggron

My Pansear was named Babb (Baobab, root of Japanese name). If I got a Panpour (female) I would call it Cynthia (Hyacinth, root of Japanese name). Panseage would have the unoriginal name of "Sage" if I caught it.

Samurott is Otto (Sounds like otter and is a PALLINDROME.)
Swoobat is Chrio (the Latin name for bats is Chiroptera or something like that.)
Scrafty is Moe (After Mohawk.)
Carracosta was named Koas (A guy I know is called Koas and I often mockingly call him Coast cos the words have the same pronounciation)
Darmantian is female and named Dolly (So original, I know)
Galvantula is Aria (Dunno why. It was originally Arachne but I did like the sound of that and on the Japanese verison it didn't fit. I used Aria instead and it stuck.)
Zekrom is Zack (Love the name really, plus Z at the start juts like Zekrom)
Excadrill is Arthur (Knight of the Round Table reference).

I named my Gyarados Ryujin, after the Japanese Dragon god of the sea. I thought it was rather fitting, especially since Ryujin was described as having a very large mouth.

My Zebstrika is nicknamed Pegazeus.
Primeape is named Optimus, after Optimus Primal.
My female Serperior is named Manda after a Godzilla character, it's also a play on the name Amanda.
A Stoutland named Ramírez. (Highlander)
A Mightyena called Timber.

And finally I have a Golbat which I Named Bruce, and a Honchkrow named Croooow.

I nicknamed my Swapert "Killer" because, well, he's a killer with Earthquake.

My Krookodile is named Chuck and he holds a black belt. Guess who I named him after :p.

I was felling silly, so before I exported all of my guys from pearl to white, I changed my Torterra's name to herpaderp XD.

Emboar - Hephaestus, Greek god of the forge and fire
Liepard - Circe, magical trickster
Archeops - Archimedes, name of Merlin's owl and it has "Arch"!
Zebstrika - Jupiter, um yeah.
Simisage - Vardaman, character from Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying" (pansage reminded me of him)
Chandelure - Sol, since it eats souls and gives light

I only nicknamed my Krookodile. It's named "Horatio" and it has the BlackGlasses equipped.

That is made of win. I only wish there was a way you could remove items so you could take them off of it at really dramatic moments :P

not sure if im copyin anybody, but w/e. this was the idea i had. im planning to get a full team on Black of FFX Aeon dubbed pokemon (once i can reach the PokeTransfer building or w/e in White). already created a female character in Black by the name of Yuna. :P

start things off with:
Braviary - Valefor
Darmanitan - Ifirit
Zebstrika - Ixion
Froslass - Shiva
Shiny Charizard - Bahamut
Giratina - Anima
Lucario - Yojimbo

also thought about naming the Psychic-trio from the 4th gen the names of the three Magus Sisters.

Serperior: Scales (Was considering Brute Root, but Venasaur owns that one.)
Braviary: Sky Slicer (Name of my Pidgeot on Blue)
Excadrill: Digger (Not my fav, but thats the best I could come up with.)
Carracosta: Shell Shocker (Just had to.)
Zekrom: Boltz (Just seemed like a sick name.)
Chandelure: Candelite (Named it that when it was Litwick.)

9th April 2011, 9:26 PM
Lets see, original team in White:

Samurott - Villain (Named as an Oshawott, because I called it 'my little villain' <3)
Gigalith - Hardcore (Because of the pun in 'roggenrola' and its pokedex entry)
Cofagrigus - Taboo (Because touching it removes your ability)
Chandelure - Wicker (It was a candle, and wicker park was a creepy movie)
Beartic - Fang (It's white :D and has icicle teeth)
Jellicent - Kaliliput (I can't pull up a source so I might be wrong, but I remember reading a story when I was younger about some arctic monster that coaxes young children down into cracks in the ice and then eats them. I think this was the name...anyway since it likes to paralyze and drag down prey, I thought it worked.)

Have:

Samurott--Suzaku (named after Suzaku Kururugi from Code Geass because my friend named his Serperior Lelouch because of its smug look)

Zoroark--Loki (Illusion Pokemon named after Trickster God. It just makes sense)

Beartic--Siber (Shortened from Siberia because its cold)

Swoobat--Aria (No real reason. I just like the name)


Plan on Getting:

Druddigon--Stone (Because it looks like a gargoyle)

I've got a couple of teams i'm doing, but this is my main one:
Cincinno: Eric (I was gonna name him mocha, but the first Adamant one i got was a guy D: (Cincinno sounds like coffee))
Hydreigon: Doom. Because he attacks EVERYTHING. :D
Reuniclus: Chaos or Immuni. Chaos because that's the Japanese derivation (Ran=Chaos) or immuni because it sounds like immune, which he is, to all statuses.
Serperior: Zephyr. No idea why. I'm just obsessed with the name.
Eelektross: Ella. Maybe. I cant decide for this one.
Volcarona: If boy, Atlas (The Atlas moth, it's design basis) or Corona for a girl.

I got Zoroark yesterday, and I named her Mimi, of obvious reasons (hint: movie 13: pokémon - zoroark: master of illusions)

10th April 2011, 7:24 PM
this was my white team

samurott,female (aquamarine)-her name is aquamarine because i like that name and i think its feminine enough (yes i make a big deal out of genders)

escavalier,male (excavalier)-named him this just because i could not come up with another name and i wanted to keep his name simple

lilligant,female (ballerina)-okay i gave her this name because she knows three moves with the name dance in them namely quiver dance, petal dance, and teeter dance

chandalure,female (pooka)-...well i just think its a name that sounds like something you would call a cute little ghost like chandalure

braviary,male (valiant)-its a movie, you gotta see it, and rufflet reminds me of that movie

zebstrika,male (sonic)-um... iz fast like sonic?

Valoo.

White is probably the first game i've given my entire team (and a few others) nicknames lol

Bacon - Embour : what can i say, fire type pig ^__^

Sunny - Volcarona : Bright as the sun, and i'm gona team him sunny day and solar beam

Raptor - Archeops : Archeopteryx was a dinosaur in the raptor family, plus raptors all had feathers.

Cobalt - Galvantula : I believe galvantula is loosely based on the cobalt blue tarrantula, plus cobalt is a metal used in electrical stuff.

Jigsaw - Haxorus : Jigsaw's are pretty brutal just like my Haxorus!

Dragon - Scrafty : Scrafty is based off of a fire salamander im guessing, and i dunno i guess salamanders are kinda like dragons...

Tank - Excadrill : Steel type, and tanks like to hit hard and plow straight through stuff like excadrill.

I also have a male omanyte called Shelly and a female farfetch'd called Leek,

This was my team when I went through White:

Galvantula (F) : Araignee - I named it after the french word for spider (minus a small accent over the first "e"). The word is also a feminine word, so it fits her gender too.
Stoutland (F) : Maisy - named after my dog lol
Jellicent (M) : Ink - I used to think that this guy was a squid for some reason and the name just kinda stuck.
Golurk : Gaia - named after the greek goddess whom is also known as earth, and Golurk being a ground type...it kinda just fit. The name also has a feel of power in my opinion and Golurk really packs a punch.
Mienshao (F) : Silk - named simply because of the extra fur on its arms.
Lilligant (F) : Sweetheart (don't judge me) - named because of the innocent look it has.

I also named two other 'mons after finishing the game. They are:

Chandelure (F) : Crystallux - named after a summon in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. I had recently finished the game and Chandelure just kinda reminded me of the summon.
Eelektross (M) : Pulse - named because when I saw Tynamo initially, the pattern on it's side reminded me of a pulse meter and the name just stuck afterwards.

Hello, I would just like opinions on my nicknames. :)

Wottson - Samurott (Sounded kinda witty, I felt like it went along with the mustache haha)

Darmuke - Darmanitan (Comes more from Darumaka, whose name I prefer more, and not such a mouthful to say)

Contouroc -Krookodile (The stripes on it's body reminded me of contour lines on maps, plus “-oc” from “croc”)

Reuniclus - Dumbledore (Lol this one comes from Albus Dumbledore, because both are “magic” kinda and both are extremely powerful)

Swanna - Swansley (Like the other one, it just kinda sounded witty lol)

Eelektross - Shibirudon (Just it's Japanese name, I liked it more because it just seemed to fit)

Please rate them! Thanks :D

I got a Karrablast and Scolipede and to put in the day-care together so I could get a Karrablast with Megahorn, and called them Roller and Coaster...

"Your Roller and Coaster are doing just fine" ...it made me chuckle a little.

I also called two Tyrogues Romulus and Remus, and evolved one into a Hitmonchan and the other into a Hitmontop. Their father is a Hitmonlee called Mars.

Terrakion - JayBeebz

I don't know why, I just couldn't think of a proper name for the pokemon because it doesn't have as much personality as some others.

Whimsicott - Snoxball

I originally tried to put it as Snowball but when I checked, it was Snox instead of Snow..I'm not changing it though, I think it sounds funny :)
