I seriously think that it is a bit way off tangent. "ichi" is just a common
word in Japan and is found in a lot of names. Shin = new, ichi = one, (and
it is written as such too in kanji) as someone pointed out previously. Who
knows what's intended. Perhaps the author wants to imply he's the best,
number 1 etc.
In whichever case, we will never know and personally I find such
speculations don't really add much to my enjoyment of the series. A lot of
times, a lot of things may look like a coincidence. But I seriously doubt it
is all intended, even for Conan where a lot of names do mean something else
(or rather borrowed from a composite of other author names most notably will
be of course, Edogawa Conan (from Edogawa Ranpo and Conan Doyle)
maybe this is the reason why subscribtion numbers are dropping =p.. most
people probably are not really fans to this extent where they try and imply
something from everything.
just my two cents worth.
