Richard

This Old German name was introduced to England by the Normans and borne by three kings of England, which is approrpiate since it means “strong ruler.” King Richard the lion-hearted was the first of them. The name has fallen out of vogue as of late, along with it’s now hokey-sounding nicknames like Richie, Rich, Dick, and Dicky
