GTS censored my Pokémon!?

I should have been more mature...or skeptical or...I don't know, but it looks like the GTS changed my Pokémon's nickname AND its OT ( but not the Trainer number).
It went like this:
As of now I am preparing different teams for the PWT Type Expert tournament. I have a shiny, EV-trained Roserade named Superbitch on my White 1 game. Because of my lack of a second DS I can't trade it to my White 2 version without problems.
But I found a away around this problem: I set up a random Ditto in the GTS, looking for a Roserade. On my W1 game I will look for this Ditto ( its pretty easy to find the Pokémon thanks to the region-search option) and trade my shiny Roserade for it. and..tadaaa...the trade is done.
Only problem is that the trade seemed to change the nickname back to Roserade's normal name and it also changed the trainer name (Kyoko ) to Shiro* as well.
The Roserade is the same as before, EVs, stats, level, shiny factor etc. but the name and OT changed. What's even better: the Ditto that my W1 character recieved is a total different one altogether. Different OT and attached item.
I checked the Join Avenue for the person called "Shiro*" but nobody was there.
I guess the system changed/resetted the name for Roserade during the trade because of its offensive nature...but I've done this several times ( with stupid nicknames as well :p ) and nothing like this has ever happened to me before.
I know a nickname is no big deal to some people, but I am actually a little sad that the name is gone now. Normal names are so plain and boring to me and this Roserade his part of my team since my Pearl days.
