    Red face Clever Pokémon Nicknames

    I've always been a fan of thinking of witty or creative nicknames for my pokemon.. I haven't seen any posts regarding nicknames, so I thought it's certainly a subject interesting enough for one..

    I name all of pokemon, and some of the names just come out of my head (example:my Venusaur is named 'Melmei') These are some of the more interesting nicknames that have actual meanings:
    Pokemon: Name: Meaning:
    Tropious (F) Cybele Phrygrian nature goddess
    Dragonite (F) Apalala Water-dwelling dragon from Buddhist Mythology
    Walrein (M) Vinterdrep Norwegian for "winter slay"
    Milotic (F) Calypso Beautiful naiad from Greek mythology and The Odyssey
    Salamence (M) Orochi Evil serpent-creature from Japanese mythology
    Articuno Aosaginohi Japanese for "blue heron fire"
    Rayquaza Xiuhcoatl Fire-serpent from Aztec mythology
    Pelipper (M)(shiny) Esmeraldo Portugese for "Emerald"
    Mantyke (M) Stevesdead Okay, it's not funny, I know.

    I give mine normal names that don't sound like edgy anime bishounens.

    Like Bob, Steven, Johnson, Susan, Willis.

    I restarted my Leaf Green a while ago...and I was playing Mother 3 at the time...so...

    Charizard - Flint
    Primeape - Duster
    Pikachu - Lucas
    Jigglypuff - Kuma
    Pidgeot - Hinawa
    Slowpoke - Oshoe

    Well, Lucas is named after Lucas Grabeel, and not Mother 3 Lucas. Merely a coincidence.

    my team current team members that have nicknames are Katana (scizor) YDraigGoch (Salamence) Oak Canyon (Torterra). I named my scizor katana because thats my favorite type of sword. Salamance name YDdraigGoch means red dragon in welsh minus a d I couldn't fit. Torterras name was the name of the street I grew up on and I thought it was the perfect name for a grass ground name.
    Is there anything worse than being all alone in the night?

    Yes... being all alone in a crowd.

    I usually give my Pokemon names that have a few letters in common with their species name.

    Lucario-F: Lucille
    Gyarados-M: Gyoza (I couldn't resist!)
    Infernape-M: Infernus (Means hell in Latin)

    Aaaaaaaaand that's it. I forget the rest.

    I had been thinking of making a thread like this...

    Anyway, here are my Pokémon that has nicknames and their inherent meanings:

    Swellow (shiny): Adolphe, named for Adolphe Célestin Pégoud, an early aviatior who became the first fighter ace.
    Infernape: Saiyuuki, the Japanese transliteration of the Chinese name of the story "Journey to the West". One of the main characters in the story was the Monkey God Sun Wukong, on which Infernape was based on.
    Luxray: Remscheid, named for the place in Germany where Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, the inventor of X-rays and whose name served as the basis for Luxray's Japanese name, was born.
    Staraptor: Dakota, named after the famous plane.
    Roserade: Trompeur, French for deceive.
    Gyarados: Hydraco, combination of the words "hydra" and "draco"
    Lucario: Auralis, from the word "aura" (Lucario is the Aura Pokémon).
    Murkrow: Sicily, named for the place in Italy infamous for it's mafia.
    Steelix: Metallurgy, the name for the study of metals.
    Gloom: Rafflesia, named for the largest single flower in the world, on which Gloom was based on.
    Fearow: Horikoshi, named for Jiro Horikoshi, the chief engineer of several World War II Japanese fighters, including the A6M Zero.
    Skarmory: Aileron, the name for a part of an airplane's wings.
    Swablu: Tyl, another name of a constellation called Epsilon Draconis, and which was the basis for Swablu's Japanese name.
    Porygon: Seizure, obvious reference to that infamous incident...
    Wingull: Wingay, named for someone I know from an IRC network.
    Seaking: excess (small "e"), named for someone on a UI customising site I go to who randomly blurted out the Seaking meme in one of his comments.
    Mantyke: Lunacy, a random name I gave it after having an unexpectedly hard time catching it.

    I also nickname most of my HM slaves, but using numbers instead of proper names to identify them. The numbers come from the bus route's numbers here, and they mainly relate to what I mainly use that particular HM slave for:

    Hoothoot - 34, a route that goes to the airport. Used as my Fly and Defog slave.
    Zubat - 858, another route that goes to the airport and also another Fly/Defog slave, used before I decided on my Hoothoot.
    Golbat - 53, yet another route that goes to the airport, and my first Fly HM slave. Was also used in my hunt for Mespirt (it was speed-boosted with Carbos and had Mean Look).
    Goldeen - 194, a bus route that serves Singapore's Jurong Bird Park, home to the world's largest man-made waterfall; therefore my Waterfall and Surf HM slave.
    Bibarel - 178, my most important HM slave, knowing Rock Climb, Rock Smash, Strength, and Surf. The bus route she (yes, this Bibarel is a female) is named for uses mostly old buses that - coincidentally or not - have an interior colour scheme identical to that of Bidoof/Bibarel's colours.

    I also have the 28 forms of Unown whose nicknames are plain weird, but I will spare you those...

    Here are some of my nicknames:
    Magnezone - Roswell (Looks like a UFO after all!)
    Yanmega (M)- Steve
    Scizor - Red Flash (Choice Scarf FTW)
    Sceptile (F) - Silvia
    Azumarill - Bugs

    I find it hard to think of decent nicknames though, but they add a personal touch to my teams.

    My team (elite 4)
    Eve the Cherrim (caught it as a Cherubi, and my first thought was "Eve" as in forbidden fruit)
    Tori the Staraptor (male, but "tori" means bird in Japanese)
    Eric the Golem (named after Eric Stuart.)
    Pegasus the Rapidash (named after mythical flying horse)
    Pochama the Empoleon (hated Piplup, so I just named mine Pochama, and it's stuck)
    Ramses the Luxray (Shinx was obviously a play on "Sphinx" and it was the first Egyptian pharaoh name I could think of)
    LJ~dA~R100~YT~Twitter~Facebook~Last.fm~Tumblr~Glacidia Network


    A bitch lives as free as a bird that can never be caught. I'm a bitch. I'll crush anyone that stands in my way! And I do what the hell I want!
