Did Rowling give Neville the family name Longbottom as a joke/funny name as part of his initial image

Is the family name of Neville a funny one that is actually part of the his “image” in the first books?

I’m asking this from the point of view of a non-British and a non-English native speaker.

Another form of this question would be – is Longbottom a name that you rather not give to your children if you can avoid it.
