Yeah, I usually try and come up with original names for my pokemon, but sometimes my brain just feels clogged up; that's when I think of a person-name that would go well with that pokemon. Some original names I've come up with are Knori (Bulbasaur) and Zeris (Rattata).
I'm feeling pretty good. Just finished Cross Country practice a little while ago and had a few aches and pains but they're gone (for now). I really love Sandshrew too. I managed to catch one during my current Nuzlocke Challenge on my LeafGreen, so that made me really happy. I named her Sandy. Pretty original huh? xD
