And if you don't well then...I guess I don't understand why you'd click the link to get here, but welcome anyways :P

Do you have set names that you like to use or do you mix it up for each Pokemon?

I name my Pokemon after the six party members from the game Digital Devil Saga (and yes, I know that these party members are all named after Hindu deities)

Varna/Varnani, Agni, Prithivi, Vayu, Dyaus, and Indra

And whenever they do a remake I use their human names

Serph/Sera, Heat, Argilla, Gale, Cielo, and Roland

How about you all?

When you catch them, it gives you the chance to, and if you don't then, you can do it at the Name Rater's house.

I generally just use whatever name comes to mind or don't nickname them.

Hey Strain, it's been a while.

I don't have a pattern, but I guess I go off of old gods and myths with literary and MTG references

I use random foreign-ish words that vaguely describe the Pokémon in question. I mix teams up regularly so I don't name them as part of a set.

I nickname them based on weather or not I feel like it and I use names that fit them.

Blaziken is C. Falcon,
Terrakion is Roflstompr,
Rattata is Top %,
My next Heatran will be Rubicante ("The frozen winds of hell's ninth circle could not penetrate this cloak of flame I wear")
And my Shiny Haxorus is Fuffy.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

If I feel there is a name I find more fitting for a pokemon than its given name, I'll usually nickname it that; Wotter for Oshawott, Avogodrill for Excadrill, things of that nature.
Then I have teams created from characters of my own writing that use the most close relation I have access to as a medium.
Then I base all the rest on other characters, lore, regions; I've gone through Africa/Sahara/Mombai/Caineghis, Canada/Arctic/Chicago/Nailah, and Bermuda/Giffca plus two others I can't think of as names for the Legendary Beasts alone, as well as names from Fire Emblem, other games (KingK.Rool for Feraligatr), Lion King (Watchog and Mamoswine)...

If I think of a specific nickname with a special meaning, I will use it. If not, I like to use Anime characters that match the Pokemon in some way.
