Do you nickname your Pokemon?

I pretty much nickname almost all of my Pokemon. The exception usually being Legendaries, but even then, I have nicknamed one Legendary (Zekrom) 'Raiden', because I couldn't resist. It was for naming him after the Japanese god of thunder and lightning, but it had a bonus of having the same name as an MGS character.

As for which Pokemon I've nicknamed (off the top of my head):
Torterra: Tarin
Infernape: Victoria (female)
Haxorus: Demise (female)
Floatzel: Aqua (female, after the Birth by Sleep protagonist)
Samurott: Kanoro
Krookodile: Shades
Lucario (physical-based one): Abraham
Lucario (special-based one): Aaron
Arcanine: Jacob
Zekrom: Raiden
Typhlosion: Horatio (SoulSilver)
Typhlosion: Axel (White)
Blaziken: Ignacio (Emerald)
Blaziken: Phoenix (White)
Manectric: Kiara
Rapidash: Epona
Scyther: Stryker

I am a Christian, and proud of it.
Common sense really isn't so common.
