They have definitely asked this question before in poll of the day, like even the wording is exactly the same. LAZY!

If you look near the bottom of the poll results page it says see other results for this poll with links to the previous times they've done the same poll. I wouldn't exactly call it lazy, it's intentional, people want to see how results differ over time.

Only if it was an actual name. I wouldn't give them such an obvious name that they'd be bullied for it.

Voted for "Probably not, I can't imagine naming a kid for someone in a game".

Probably, if it were a really honorable or interesting character.

Irrelevant as I'm not having a child. I can hardly keep myself afloat at the moment, plus I have hereditary health issues which I'm afraid to pass onto my child.

If I were to, say, adopt a baby, I'll make sure s/he doesn't even share a name by coincidence, because I don't want them to be bullied in school because of it. Those who gave their children weird names are bloody irresponsible, to put it mildly.

Probably not, but if I did it would have to be a normal human name. The recipient of this name is a real live person, with feelings and everything. Do consider the impact this will have on them.
I like video games. They're pretty good.
