Default Choosing Nicknames

As a general question, how do you choose nicknames for your Pokemon, if you do at all? And how do you name the Pokemon that are going to be with you for a while, like your starter and your Legendary?

Personally, if I have two copies of the game, I have a theme in one (White is my Harry Potter theme) and one that just has names I love. For my Legendaries in these two games, I decided to name them after the god and goddess in my favoite book series, The Kiesha'Ra. They are complete opposites, so I named Reshiram Anhamirak after the goddess of fire and chaos and I will be naming Zekrom Ahmnik after the god of ice and silence.

Paired with my love, the incredibly awesome and amazingly fantastic Shock <3

I have started to give out nicknames to my pokemon since the 4th generation games. At first they were just me picking out something from the pokemon like a characteristic or something from their name. My turtwig I named Twiggy, Char was my charizard, and Kiss was my togekiss.

Then recently I started to have some sort of theme starting in Platinum. In that game I named my pokemon after jobs you see in a manor such as Butler the Infernape, Lifeguard the Floatzal, Chef the Ryhperior and Princess the Dragonite.

HeartGold I did a theme of character from the anime Durarara!. I had Kida as my hot headed typhosion, Anri my bladed Scyther, Mikado my technology happy Rotom and Izuya my ever so happy Togitic.

Now for my Black verison I am running with a royalty like theme by adding Sir or Lady to my pokemon's name. Sir Bacon the Embour, Lady Gaga my Eelektrik, Sir Birdy my Archeops, and Lady Rima my Lampent.

For when I did/will WiFi teams I named all my pokemon after One Piece characters.
I think I do a good job in naming my pokemon.

I choose nickname at random, whatever fits the Pokemon.

These are the names I came up with for my BW team:

Samurott - Alex
Zebstrika - Telsa
Swoobat - Azure
Krookodile - Rudahn
Zoroark - Mima ("Mima" is what Zorua called his mother in the 13th movie)
Haxorus - Hanny

My current team (Which I shall not list until the tourney I'm using it in has finished =P) are all nicknamed after characters from the TV show House, with each name actually being quite fitting [=

I usually only name whoever's going to be on my story or competitive teams, and I go with names I think are fitting with the Pokemon's appearance, type, or stereotypical behavior, they don't really have a theme other then that. For example, my Serperior is called Xochicoatl or "Flower Snake", one of my Lopunny is called Cream after the lop from Sonic, I named my shiny Lopunny Leaps because it was hatched on February 29th... and is a rabbit... and my Minccino is named after my pet chinchilla, Chu-chu.

I choose the first inappropriate word that comes into my head and type it in.

I normally don't nickname my Pokemon :P But since I'm studying two languages in school, I nicknamed them as part of my 'incorporating French/German in to your daily life' assignment. xP I doubt it's what my teacher had in mind, buuuut... Anyway... So for my Siesmitoad, I nicknamed it 'Swamp' in German which is 'Sumpf' :3 If I don't like what it translates to, then I go here and keep picking different languages until I like it >3< So yeah~
I need a new sig, uhg.
