To this day I don't know what I should name him.

I may just stick with ??? when I play the 2nd gen again. Do the guy even have a canon name in the game files or something?
Silver is pretty near canon. That's the name he's given in Gold and Crystal if you don't enter a name, and its used as placeholder data in HG/SS until you can name him.
And yes, I named him ??? as well. My reason was twofold: The oddity of someone calling themselves ??? made the "name" stick in my mind, and I didn't want to lie to a police officer (this was before I found out that Pokemon has the most incompetent police ever). Nowadays I call him Silver because I like to keep as close to canon as possible, and no other name seems to fit.
