Dick Namesakes Comments :Dick is a proper name English and the Netherlands men. It is a ipocoristico of Richard, analogous to Rick, also used as a name of its own at least from the eighteenth century ; the change of initial consonant, according to the traditional explanation, is due to the way in which the British pronounced the R alveolar trill of Norman. In the Middle Ages it was very common, so as to be used as a generic term for an ordinary man (as the Italian Dude) and give life to those whom every Tom, Dick and Harry. Since at least the 1890s the term one became even slang indicating the penalties, and its use as the name is dropped as a result. Versions of the name are Dickie, Dicky, Dickey, Dickon. - Jeffrey Pillow
