For cases where the name does not make sense for the case, (ie.
'trunk'), one could simply not click on the checkbox and happily use
current behavior. If one does in fact check the option, the created
dir name should be 'trunk' then.

Maybe if one wants to be fancy, one could have a "suggest name" button
to let tsvn come up with tortoisesvn_trunk or something similar.

As I mentioned, it would be an option, and not necessarily checked by
default. There's no need to discriminate one behavior for the other as
both can be useful. What's needed is to come up with a user interface
where the user can choose easily which one is more appropiate for his
needs at the moment.
