When I first saw this thread I was all "lolwut, is this for real?", some stuff here really made me laugh. But for a serious answer, no. I would for my pet, though (if I had one, which I don't...oh wait, I just remembered I used to have a goldfish which I named Charr after Charmander)

Look Forward, Team Rocket!
Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)
There are a couple that could be deemed as acceptable but I wouldn't call my kid Dragonite.
By the time i end up having kids , and they get to an age where their names would 'matter' , pokemon would probably have stopped being made.That said it probably wouldnt be as bad if you used just a part of their name or a name that sounds foreign rather then...a video game character. By that i mean something like Pika , Zorua , Eevee (can say its based on Eve? lol) sandi...(...ile haha). How silly :P.
Real world uses (either real name, nickname or username):
*Barrierd the security guard blocked the pathway which accesses into casino so Kucheat cannot enter.
*Pachirisu was suspected for the murder of Chillarmy.
*General Mijumaru was arrested for illegal bribery.
*Koratta hacked the Namco Bandai Games' official website so players are unable to use online gaming provided by NBGI.
Well, if it's well hidden, like Kat Arpy, Joe Teon, Zoe Rua, or Dee Ling, that could be somewhat socially acceptable, but you can imagine what the poor kids will go through when somebody figures it out. And I'm sure we can all agree nobody names their kid Muk.
I'd never name my child after a Pokemon. It just seems like someone who hasn't fully matured in their decision making would do. I mean, sure it'd be cute and funny at the time when they're babies but when they get into school they'd be a flashing red light for bullies and cruel jokes. Heck, my first name is spelled different from the norm and every time a teacher would ask me how to pronounce it I'd get laughed at. And I have a normal name! I could just imagine how that poor child would feel every new year having to say "Yeah, my name is Tepig."
Roselia is the only name off the top of my head that could work as a 'normal name'. But even then, there's already perfectly normal names like Rosemary, Rose Marie, and just plain Rose that would work perfectly well if you wanted to name your daughter after a rose. You could even go with Rosie if you wanted the name to be cute and bubbly.
Even giving your kid a nickname after a pokemon seems like it would be an awful idea. Especially if you let it slip in front of his or her friends and they passed it on to everyone else. Then again, I'm against even naming a pet after a fictional character. |: So I might just be a wee bit paranoid.
An IceFox who prefers fire types? That's... interesting.
I'm more partial to blues and greens as well~
Kirlia. Absolutely. It's something I'd name my daughter whether it's the name of a Pokemon or not. It's cute and it starts with a K (which is very important to me.)
I'll never do that to my kids. It would be pretty immature from my part, and I can imagine my parents yelling at me, asking me why did I called my son "Noctowl Wednesday". I bet I wouldn't even be able to register the kid, let alone baptise him with that name. Also, my surname is already pretty odd, so it's a no-no for me.
My first male child shall bear my first name, just as I bear my father's name, and my grandfather's, and my grand-grandfather's... and my grand-grand-grandfather's...
If they misbehave, yes.
