I like nicknaming my Pokemon, in fact I always nickname them even if I can't think of a good nickname. So some of my Pokémon have really weird nicknames. Like once when I caught a male Audino I couldn't think of anything so I just named it Murse (I got it from this episode of Wipeout where one of the contestants was a male nurse and they called him murse) But now that I think about it murse sounds like a really weird name for a Pokémon, too bad whoever got it from the GTS can't rename it. I wish GameFreak would add a feature to the next Pokémon game that lets you rename a Pokémon you got from a trade, if you have the OT's permission. (just in case it was a really well thought out nickname like the ones you guys have )
On my Fire Red Nuzlocke, I came across a Pikachu for my first encounter at the Power Plant. It had Static, a Brave nature, and was male... and I nicknamed him Loki instead of Thor. Regrets? None. He kicked ass.

I always root for the ships that don't get a lot of love.
I renamed my Typhlosion 'Tyson' recently. I thought it was funny and fitted his name.
I usually come up with odd/obvious nicknames. Examples:
Serperior - Sir Perior
Plusle - + (yes, I actually named it a symbol)
Minun - - (still a symbol)
Litwick - Candle
Garbodor - Trash
Axew - Ax You
Celebi - Tardis (I don't even...)
Ninetales - Kyuubi / Kurama (Oh, the references...)
Ditto - Flubber (Honestly...)
Audino - Dr. Dre
That's all the good ones, I think.

Normally, I'm pretty inept when it comes to making up nicknames for my Pokemon, but I nicknamed my Gengar from HeartGold FrightNite. I thought it was pretty creative.
I'm actually really proud of the nicknames I came up with for my Ruby Team (Yes, I'm still playing Ruby/Sapphire):
Insieme per la vittoria...
Rotom-W named F.L.U.D.D. (Yes, with all the periods, too.)
Dusclops named Kerrigan
Cloyster named Gatling (It is Skill Link w/ Shell smash, but it's actually a reference to World of Quest, a rather intruiging and amusing cartoon)
Gliscor named Vladimir
Heatran named Torchman and one named I~34 (NOT a freeway exit, actually so I could keep track of it's Hidden power, but it sounds like a freeway exit)
Scrafty named Anybodys (West Side Story, anyone?) and another named Thug
Hippowdon named Ramses III (Hippos were feared in egypt)
Metagross named Ultron, and another named Gigas
Darkrai named Raimundo (Xiaolin Showdown, anybody?)
Darmanitan named The Dame
I only nickname a Pokemon when I can think of something awesome.
Pokemon used competitively:
Togekiss♀-Cirrus (named after the cloud)
Togekiss♂-Hypotenuse (That one side of a right triangle that is different from the other 2 sides. And Togekiss has triangles... this has to be one of the best nicknames I've come up with ever in my opinion)
Metagross-Zettal (A mix of the words 'zen' and 'metal'. I added the extra 't' 'cause I think 'Zettal' looks nicer than 'Zetal' in my opinion)
Electivire-Tazetail (Obvious reasons)
my Other Pokemon:
Tropius-Bananasaur (obvious reasons)
Giratina-Shadow (Not the most unique name out there. I might change it)
Dialga-Girl's BFF (Remember the song "Diamonds are a girls best friend"?)
Skarmory-Bladewing (not the best name, but whatevs)
Swampert- Aquasoul (from my Emerald game, not the best name)
Deerling-Lingling (It sounds cute...)
Bidoof-ARCEUS (My friend made me do that...)
My sister's Palkia-Mr. puggles (I just had to include that)
my sister's Tailow-C*NTF*CKER (Minus the asterisks)
my sister's Meditite-WHIPASS
That's all I can think of at the top of my head...
