This is my Pokemon Platinum team, currently leveling them up for the eighth and final gym:
Heracross; None. (Lv. 55) - Need help on this. I was going to call it Heracles, but it's female.
Lucario; Hadouken (Lv. 52) - Self explanatory.
Gliscor; Shinobi (Lv. 53) - This one should be obvious. I couldn't think of anything better for Gliscor.
Garchomp; Chomper (Lv. 52) - Gotten from the little T-Rex from Land Before Time.
Houndoom; Iota (Lv. 49) - Personal.
Luxray; Lion-O (Lv. 50) - Gotten from a character from Thundercats.
Wouldn't mind a bit of help for Heracross, Gliscor and Houndoom though.

All of my pokémon, unless traded, have only three letters in their names. It bothers me if they're any longer- again, unless they're traded. You'd be amazed what combinations you get, naming with three letters for like 400 pokémon. XD Most of them don't have a significant meaning, though.
I always nickname Pokemon, usually for the fun factor - I called a Psyduck "J'aiUnBall" (Translation: I have one ball) in a French lesson, 'cause I learnt that ball, in French, is ball.
My team is:
Milotic - Milo. I called it Milokaross at first, but it got annoying telling everyone how to pronounce it, so I just shortened it. Plus, Milo is nice.
Jolteon - Thunder. I was gonna call it Thunders, but I didn't like the s.
Salamence - Powerhouse. Only a temp name, and 'cause I want it to own.
Torterra - Tree. 'Cause it has a tree on it.
Metagross - none. Traded for it, then put it in Pokemon Box, then brought it out onto Emerald, then migrated it. Poor Metagross. He'll be my new best friend. -Feeds berries-
Charizard - Andrew. My mate's name is Andrew. Which sucks 'cause my English teacher is also called Andrew, and I hate him. And I can't change it 'cause it's migrated.

I just recently caught an AWESOME Chansey. Basically, within seconds of stepping into the grass on some route in the D/P series (in search of a Chansey, of course) I meet one in the wild within five minutes of turning on the game, in fact it was the very first one. I caught the Chansey only to find that it was holding a Lucky Egg. (That's 5% of 5%, right there...)
Her name is Lucky Lucy. :P
Also, I had an urge to name my Alakazam "Matt Damon". Kinda fun.
Some of my nicknames
Raikou-Rayquaza X (Don't ask why)
Gyarados-BEW Dragon (I named him from the Blue Eyes white dragon card from Yu Gi Oh.)
Heracross-KR Kuuga (searh kamen rider kuuga in google or wikipedia to get it.)
Porygon Z- Megaranger (do the same thing above exept search megaranger)
Honchkrow- Al Capone
I know, they're kinda wierd.

Kadabra-Magik b/c I grew bored of nicknames
Togepi-Tobi-Tic after a guy named Tobi who got on my nerves and made my eye tic/twitch
Turtwig-Twiggles- My brother is Tommy and I call him Wiggles to piss him off so I named the thing after him
I made a team other than the one I had with Digimon names that I used to beat the Battle Tower in Diamond and get the last star on my Trainer Card. Originally they were named after Digimon like the rest of my Pokémon, but I wanted to give them another theme because my best friend has his group known as the "Holy Dragons." These are them:
Starmie, nick: Sea Titan
Electivire, nick: StormTitan
Salamence, nick: Sky Titan
Clefable, nick: Song Titan
Mismagius, nick: ShadwTitan
Arcanine, nick: SpeedTitan
The theme other than the "titan" part is that each name starts with an "s," which was hard to think up, believe you me. The Titans are also better than my old team by way of testing them against Frank's Holy Dragons. Leviathan, his Kingdra, was able to obliterate practically every member of my old team on its own. The total of wins/losses between the Titans and the Dragons is currently tied.
My newly planned team for Platinum (though I'll need a job and a new DS first) consists of an Empoleon named Glorious, an Aggron named Apocalypse, a Dodrio named Galaxy, and Hitmonchan named Ultimus, a Metagross named Etiole, and a Skarmory named Yoshitsuna. The theme of these names are that they are the best weapons in Disgaea other than the Omniscient Staff and the Monster weapon Nemesis Mk.II.
