i actually find this little factoid very interesting. scorpion's name is a reference to an old fable called "the scorpion and the frog."   
one day a scorpion asks a frog to help him cross the river. the frog, understandably wary of a dangerous scorpion, at first says no because he is afraid that the scorpion will sting him during their voyage. the scorpion says he wouldn't do that because if he did, they both would sink into the river and die. so the frog agrees to take the scorpion across the river.   
halfway across, the scorpion stings the frog anyway. as they sink to their deaths, the frog demands to know why. the scorpion simply responds, "i am a scorpion. it is in my nature to sting."   
there's so much insight behind that name because it tells that scorpion is so consumed with revenge towards sub-zero that he doesn't care who or what he will destroy during his quest for vengeance, even if he dies in the process. his destructive behavior defines him. it is his very nature to destroy.   
   
tl;dr reference to "scorpion and the frog"

It sounds impressively lame.

People will look down on you for that.

You might as well go around calling yourself "Warlock McNo"dick

No no no, his name is scorpion because his chained spike originally looked more like a scorpions stinger. How dare you question my beloved Mortal Kombat

Depending on what story line you follow, he got the name scorpion for his skill with kunai (MK: Legacy). The other possibility is that since he is the last of the Shirai Ryu, which had the symbol of the scorpion, he took it as his name in memory of his clan. His real name is Hasashi Hanzo if anyone was wondering.

Why would Scorpion be so friendly? This is the fucker who killed your whole clan! Don't tell him what he wants to know!

Maybe the concept is that the thing he uses for the get over here move is supposed to be a "scorpion tail"?
