What is in a Name and the Lack of Creativity

Ok this is to all those people out there who have played with people who just name their character the most unoriginal things. You know what I am talking about, A massive 8ft Orc barbarian named James, a High Elf Ranger named Juan and so on. Now yes it annoys me to no extent when people forgo being creative in the creation of their character, it is like a giant batsignal that this person will hardly add to the fun of the game. 9 times out of 10 I am right, the lack of imagination in the creation of a character usually spawns into lack of imagination in the game. I like it when people add flavor to their attacks and not just say "I attack the orc" O.o, how are you attacking it with what and where? Maybe I am just anal about this stuff but I like it when the game is fully of creativity. Has anyone else run into this problem?
