Assalamu'alaikum Sis!!
Lol, it's Kunyah not karsi :) but no they do not necessarily have to be the exact names of the persons child, and it's not exactly a 'replacement' for the persons name, it's just a sunnah that the Prophet peace be upon him encouraged....so regardless whether the person has a child or not he/she can still pick a name which he/she likes and apply the Abu/Umm on to it :)

I hope you understand my post :p
