Something about a little girl named Eggnog running around makes me giggle. (til she hit's 12, then you frown and wonder)
Japanese are notorious for this, no?
Bleach's main character is named (I like to put a Pimp-twist to it and say it in a Barry White tone) Strawbeeerry.
Only is you ignore the kanji. And hey, this isn't unique. It happens in RL too. It's always weird seeing myself on the ingredients lists of exotic candy date flavored candy. I happen to like dates :(
Venus and Braves had the leads Blood, Vivid and Ariah. Xenoblade has Shulk and Florung (say that ten times fast). And I'm pretty sure our next heavy-hitting JRPG will have a lead idiot named Chair or some sort of appliance.
There's also Kharg. Try pronouning that without sounding like you're going to vomit.
Which Tales game was the one with the villain named Spot? I always imagine him as a cute black and white puppy with a red scarf.
Especially those mangakas (creators, writers, etc) they try to give the character a name that appeals to the idea they have. Another fine example is the main character from Death note, Yagami Light, especially his last name, and they mention it A LOT in the anime. 夜神 the first kanji, means NIGHT and the means GOD. You put them together and you have a badass name or at least a badass meaning for your name.
Also, Yagami = I'm a gay :P
