Uh... Most names in English have crazy meanings if you look at word origins... Japanese names aren't meant to be translated literally.
That would be like someone in Japan trying to translate the English name "Nicholas" as its Greek meaning "Victory of the People".
"Man, why would someone name their kid 'victory of the people'? That's so weird."
It can also be argued, if you insist on breaking down the kanji of his given name, that ichi also means "the best" or "number one". It may have had an impact on picking the name, but I doubt it.
