I nickname a lot, so I won't go into too much detail.
All I want to say is that I think I picked the perfect nickname for my Snivy:

I dont name my pokemon, besides that one time I named my Charmander Blaze in Red/Blue. To me, I can never think of any good nicknames, so I just stick with their original names .

D'awww, Blaze.

I take it as a challenge to see how much I can nickname, so I pretty much nickname everyone. I cringe when I get a Pokemon that isn't nicknamed from a trade, since that locks me out of the fun in nicknaming.

Some of my notable ones...

Sir Triton for my Serperior, since his smug attitude is rather regal, and I got the last name off Luke Triton from Layton.

Amenhotep for my Cofagrigus, named after the actual pharaoh of Egypt. I don't know which one, though.

Omnhkhbomf for my Crobat. It's kind of like an onomatopoeia.

Whoopee for Stunfisk. It sounded like a whoopee cushion...

BurgerKing for Shieldon. Yeah, I don't know too.

Monkey Bed for Scyther. ...

Bill's Poop for Eevee...

All right, I'm kind of done here. xD

Most of the pokemon I named simply use the Japanese names because many of them are better than the English names IMO. Some are based off of what many fans theorized as the names before names actually got released. Some are just things I came up with.

Koetetsu as I believe there was some myth on him as a blacksmith that makes Japanese swords, so the name fits

Pluto, because it's a mole... lives underground... like the roman god Pluto... I ran out of good nicknames, m'kay...

Shadow, if you don't get this, you have a few problems

Nike, as Victini is the victory pokemon, and Nike is the victory spirit

Mercury, as it flies. A lot. :/

Mars, as It's a complete sweeper.
Blame your fate.

The only Pokemon I have currently nicknamed is my roggenrolla, named Dangoro, not only because it was his jp name, but it sounds very fitting for his current gigalith form.

Well my nicknaming skills suck so I nickname my pokemons not to far from their original names. Here are some examples of my pokemons from FireRed version:

Charizard - Chary
Jigglypuff - Jiggle
Pikachu - Kachi
Fearow - Arrow

I can't remember the others but it goes like that.

I always give my Pokemons real names like Thomas or Gabriella. The name starts with the first letter of the last form's name.
Sweet success or so they say is never quite you'd imagine.
