I called myself Enma, i think it's a nice name for the female trainer
And my rival it's Max, i called him like that because when i was starting my game i was with my friend max bothering me and i decided to put that name to bothering him back xD
I nickname my pokemons based on other games characters like Catherine, .Hack// and Eternal Sonata.

I just bought my W2 so my pokemons are pretty low level for now xD

I named my character danika (real name) though I wish I hadn't as the memory link is a bit weird haha.
Rival; hugh because I am a lazybutt
My current team;
samurott - Callahan (aw yea for giving girls guy names and it is a kickass name)
Black kyurem - Tsallo (play on 'Sallow')
Garchomp - Czello (I love cellos and the 'cz' prefix)
Latios - Brent (love the name)
and i couldn't name genesect and zoroark.

Not sticking with this team though, will swap it all around when I get my team from black!

I named my character Brendan, just like I have in all of the other games since it's my actual name. I also kept the trend of giving my rival their default name (Hugh, in this case). I chose Snivy as my starter and nicknamed it Tarja, as that's the second half of it's Japanese name. I try to nickname all of my Pokemon aside from legendaries, but I've only recently started, so I only have my Snivy at this point.

I named my character Rene (my irl name) as weird as it is XD

I kept my Rivals default name (Hugh) since I think it fits him, and he's a really cool guy :D

As for my Pokemon Team (I play White 2):

Serperior (Ivy) - Yeah totally an original name XD.
Weezing (Gassy) - A Tribute to one of my favorite 'creatures' on youtube.
Wailmer - No nickname because he was given to me in a trade. :3
Gigalith (Adamantium) - Yet another tribute to a movie I love. (X-Men)

I still plan on getting an Axew and a Litwick on my team. Don't know what I'll nickname them yet, but that's all I've got


So sleepy...

I named myself Ethan, because well that's my name. I named my rival Hugh because I was lacking ideas and profane nicknames died in...oh who am I kidding they're still kinda funny. My pokemon had no central theme, but my Samurott was named after my past water-starters, my Sawsbuck was Bambi, my female Grumpig was Ms. Piggy...pretty much the only notable nicknames.

Myself: I named myself Thomas because that's my name.

Rival: ...Newman? I don't fully know why xD I think I saw that name somewhere and thought, yeah, that's a great name for my rival in the new Pokemon game!

Pokemon: I don't usually give Pokemon nicknames because I like the original names better :p when I do give nicknames though they're usually something that will have some kind of affiliation with what the Pokemon looks like i.e Ghost for Dusknoir, etc. Also maybe just aaaaa or something like that if I'm getting Pokemon I'll hopefully never use.

I named myself with my both own name (White 2) and Kyouhei (Black 2), my rival always as Hugh and my Pokemon:

Samurott: Mizu - Japanese for 'water'.
Lucario: Aura with a star symbol behind it - It's an aura user and it is my star Pokemon.
Hydreigon: Hydra - Well, a hydra has many heads, and so does Hydreigon.
Darmanitan: Darmi - Couldn't find a better name for it lol.
Crobat: Sora - Japanese for 'sky'.
Eelektross: Elexa - I just liked the sound of that name, plus I had not many name ideas as well.

Yeah, very original names there huh? Haha. There were just 5 characters for renaming in the Japanese version; not much to fit in there.

I always nickname myself Danny, since that's my actual name. My rival is nicknamed Eddie, after my boyfriend (he did the reverse in his game- named himself Eddie and his rival Danny). Just sort of a fun thing we decided to do.

My team is named after different Greek names, since I wanted to go with a theme for their nicknames. My team is-

Emboar "Erebus"
Lucario "Antaeus"
Ampharos "Theia"
Sigilyph "Aether"
Haxorus "Cronus"
Hydreigon "Kratos"

The names themselves don't make much sense, but they kind of fit in their own way. I enjoy coming up with different themed nicknames, haha.

My main Pokemon character is always named Scarlet. I already forgot what I named the rival, honestly. And my pokemon are all named One - Whatever the last number is that I caught. (So my Oshawott was named One, my Sewaddle Two, etc). Except the Nincada I caught in the Dream World. I named him Ninki because my Nincada is always named Ninki.

Myself: Mei (because to hell with Rosa)
Rival: Hue (again, going with the Japanese name, hahaha)

Samurott: Kensei (means swordsmanship master; I ended up thinking a lot about nicknames in this game I guess. Gotta make all interesting and fitting)
Lucario: Reiki (aura-related shizz)
Aggron: Smasher (because hell yeah Head Smash)
Crobat: Nightwing (probably the weakest name in the bunch. It doesn't even know any dark attacks. Though it's a better name in of itself than AcroBat)
Flygon: Sirocco (because hell yeah desert stuff)
Chandelure: Lumiere (can't use accents in Pokémon games. :( )

Self: Allen (Name IRL)
Rival: Eric (My cousin's name)
Motochika the Samurott
Hideyoshi the Darmanitan
Masamune the Braviary
Kiyomasa the Haxorus
Ranmaru the Lucario
Motonari the Lilligant

All of them are named after the Warlords in Pokemon Conquest which they have a Perfect Link with, except for Darmanitan (but Hideyoshi is the only major Fire-type Warlord) and Liligant (same with Motonari, only main Grass-type Warlord)
Generally, my nicknames follow a pattern or theme. I am always Allen, rival is always Eric, and Pokemon have Asian-themed nicknames.
