And that became Horny the Rhyhorn. I was really confused why my friend thought the name was so funny, so when she was laughing at it, I figured it must not be a good word so I changed it to Conifer. When she FINALLY told me what it meant, I was relieved I changed the name lol.

      I still have this Rhyhorn, btw. Been a Rhydon for years. This was 10 years ago, man. Gettin' old.
      Something smillar happened to me, when I was a toddler.
      I caught a Meowth in Gen I and gave it a name that I did not know was a dirty word at that time.
      That name starts with the letter P. Hahaha!

            Most embarrassing pokemon name would probably have to be my snorlax on Blue, Red, Green
            He was simply known as "Cheeks" I was a kid I thought it was the funniest name ever...


            Don't judge me lololol

              Oh, sweet Arceus, help me.

              I dug deep down into the PC Boxes of a used Platinum game. Oh, the horrors!

              Except for his team of six level one Mime Jr.'s, his entire PC consisted of Mr. Mimes. All of the nicknamed "Lavender". Possibly in reference to Lavender Town and all of the creepy myths surrounding it?

              Possibly. But alas, we shall never know...

                When I played Crystal when I was a kid, I named my Noctowl "Nightmare" and my Donphan "Big Nose". I never nickname my Pokemon now though.

                One run of Leaf Green I nicknamed every Pokemon I caught after Lord of the Rings characters. It's not so much embarrassing as it is awesome, but you get the point. Not sure how I decided to name my starter "Eomer" and not like "Frodo" or "Gandalf."

                  I named my very first Pokemon (Cyndaquil in Crystal) "Fire Dude" but renamed him to "Blaze" once I got to Goldenrod City. Now, Blaze is my trademark Pokemon, which I seriously duplicated exactly, stat-4-stat, move-4-move, and pretty much everything-4-everything, and put it in Emerald. Then I duplicated THAT twice and put in Platinum and HeartGold. And I never transferred it to Black because I lost my copy of Black. But I think I'm gonna transfer him to White 2 to get him to X. Anyway, Fire Dude is a really dumb name, and he's a Quilava with an Everstone, but still, I found a traded Typhlosion on Diamond with the name FireDude, so maybe it's not TOO crazy.

                    Oh my god, that is super creepy. It's always interesting to see what you get when you load up a used game... I got a copy of Ruby that was full of Pokemon nicknamed rude words. I felt so bad for them I went to the name rater and changed them all!

                    I wish I had my original save files from when I was a kid. I replayed those games so many times though, the originals are long gone. I do remember naming my first ever Charmander "Matches", so I always name every Charmander I get with that name, just for nostalgia's sake.

                      Never did it myself, but basically spell Muk's name backwards and you get a very fitting nickname for it, lol.

                        I know, Relicanth but the worst part was his name. That Relicanths name was Rocky

                            I caught a Mienshao and ended up naming it Armhair. Yeah... not my best decision in life.

                                    Haha I love these: some of them are absolutely hilarious. Thank you original thread creator, you're wonderful :D

                                    I'm uncreative, so most of my Pokemon just have a y at the end. Ziggy, the Zigzagoon Birdy the generic bird at the start of the games.. Geodude is Rocky or Georock

                                    I have named Squirtle Sheldon and Axew Axel, which I thought was pretty cool though and a Crobat called Batzinga which imo is AWESOME

                                    Also: Tubby the Snorlax

                                    I can't really think off the top of my head of any particularly bad nicknames, but usually I play Pokemon with my Boyfriend, so we have a "your next Pokemon will be called ____" kinda thing, so I have lots of gender confused Pokemon, such as Alice the male Rapidash

                                      This one isn't really embarrassing but I thought it was pretty silly. I was going through my PC in my Black 2 game. I came across a Drifblim that had the punniest nickname ever. I named it PacificBlim (Or PacifiBlim because of character restraints). I was choking with laughter. I completely forgot about PacificBlim. I guess I caught him right after I saw Pacific Rim in theaters.

                                          Not only was it horrendously unimaginative, being named after the inspiration for the Pokémon, but I even had the cheek to spell it incorrectly.

                                            The most noobish sounding nickname I've ever given a Pokemon was "Giant!!!!" and that was to, you guessed it, Wailord. Even so, I find it more silly than anything really

                                            Most of the nicknames I give Pokemon are supposed to be stupid. Otherwise, they're just normal like my Pidove, "Nick."

                                            The cutest nickname I've given was my Mantyke, "Lil 'Tyke."

                                              Ha, I had a Raichu named Tubby in Diamond. Also an Ampharos named Chese (we meant to spell cheese XD) comes to mind. But to prevent future mistakes, I have a foolproof algorithm to making good names for pokemon: Just make the most Japanese sounding word your mind could possibly form, and make sure the first letter is the same as the as the first letter of the pokemon (ex. Zangooose = Zuriniad). Or just name it after a band.

                                                Some of these nicknames nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
                                                Worst I've nicknamed is a Ratatta "FEAR" back in middle school and using it in a competitive battle.
