Nickname, maybe, but give it an actual name? Euh, neuh.
Glacia and Blacky are cool names as somebody have actual names named after the Japanese names of these two Eeveelutions (Glaceon and Umbreon). However, the latter one would be sensitive as it containing offensive meanings against blacks. Abra's Japanese name, Casey, is weird for a Pokémon but is a common human names. However, only nicknames (including usernames) would work for most Pokémon names. Imagine Kabushiki-gaisha Tyltalis, or a security guard named Barrierd.
If I ever had a daughter I would consider giving her the name Absol :3 it´s my favourite pokémon and it doesn´t sound _that_ weird, does it?
I personally wouldn't mind my name being Chikorita seeing as to how my 'net handle has been Chika for over half a decade now. (And it's something I got from Chikorita.)
Although, as for naming another kid that, eh, there's a ton of trainer names you can use for naming someone that's a normal name instead of using the name of an actual 'mon.

maybe. If I could think of a good one of the top of my head lol
Hinoarashi, contains arashi which means trolling, thus made solely a "trolling" name for Japanese internet community. This is same for Yukiwarashi (Snorunt).
And, some Japanese names (like Mijumaru and Hikozaru) can be weird-reading if translated to shinjitai or kyujitai. For example, "konnichiwa, watashiwa Mizugorou desu".
My name was actually legally Lugia for the first few minutes, because they mispelled my actual name when printing the birth certificate. Obviously that's not my name, but it'd be cool if it were.
In honesty, I probably would, but that's sort of child abuse, so in reality I won't. Human names like Ash or Erica would be acceptable, but stuff like Roselia is not.
lol, wouldn't it be funny if someone's last name were Dreavus or Magius? Like Ms. Dreavus or Ms. Magius? That'd be the coolest last name ever, if you're a girl.
Person 1 "Why hello there! What's your name?"
Person 2 "Lugia"
Person 1 "Oh hello Lu- wait a minute, that can't be your name because that's a Pokemon's name!"
It would also feel awkward referring/mailing to people named after Pokemon:
To: Lugia Silver (real last name)
For me I would not name my kid after a Pokemon, but I would do so for actual human names or names that sound real (e.g. Ritchie, Tracey, Delia, Giovanni).
Although I would name my kid with a name that very vaguely resembles the Pokemon's name... very vaguely.
I dont think any kid has the name Pikachu. Thats my choice.
