By wrestling name, I mean a name that sounds like a given name. Here's how you do it.
Take your middle name. This will be your first name.
Take your first name. Pluralize it. This will be your new last name.
I came to notice this when I went on wikipedia and realized that a lot of fake names are inversions of the wrestler's real name. For example: "Christopher Daniels" is really Daniel Christopher Covell (though you can't trust any website that claims Christopher Daniels is Curry Man. Lies and slander, I say), and "Shawn Michaels" is Michael Shawn Hickenbottom.
You can abbreviate either of your names in any way that will make them sound good. For example:
My first name is Nicholas. My middle name is Alexander. I shorten them both and apply the "Create A Wrestling Name" method, and I end up with Al Nicks, renegade nephew of Stevie Nicks, 22 years-old but forever at the edge of seventeen. Fear the sinister nature of my heeldom!
So, um...yeah, give it a try. What's your name (and gimmick, if you're feeling creative)?
Steve Dav? Steven David? Steven Davidoff? Steven Poppins and the Chimney Sweeps?
You can tell 'em after you've defeated them
Middle Name: Albert First name: Edmund (changed to "Edmond" for the purposes of using it as a last name)
Albert Edmonds: Self-proclaimed Canadian Oil Magnate (though actually a very good con artist) that hails from Edmonton, Alberta, and claims he owns the entire City. Sort of a Million-Dollar-Man-esque gimmick only it's Canadian money so he has a tag team of enforcers known as "The Loonie Bin"

Yes, to clarify, you don't have to actually say what your first and middle name is. I just gave mine as an example. Just put what your wrestling name would be. I'm sure if there were any bad eggs around here, you could just alter the spelling or shorten it like I did (Alexander to Al, which could have been Albert, Alvin, etc., so no one would ever know). But yeah, WC is filled with upstanding citizens, so I wouldn't worry.
