For a fictional character it's OK. They could of just kept with Claire so they can have at least one person in the group with a normal name but whatever. I kind of forgot why she calls herself that.

If she was born with it, no.
But since she choose it herself, yes, it's very, very stupid.

Toriyama created Lightning for Final Fantasy XIII series. He can name any of his own characters he wanted with myths and different meaning of the characters. Like Cloud, Squall, and other, he can think of something interesting and cool, whatever.

For example, if I create my main character as a heroic demon who is sympathetic to humans and fight the evil for them and name him "Drake" or "Red Scale (code name or nickname) ", it can make everyone remember his name of who he is when they play the game, despite of whether it's good or bad..

Yes. Claire would have been just fine.

I don't really know how common it is, but my brother-in-law, my best friend's cousin, and two of my other friends all have nicknames they got from the military. And compared to their nicknames (which are not at all silly IMO), Lightning seems like a decent nickname too.
