Meaning:Dominant ruler
Although most popular as a nickname for Richard, Dick is a first name in its own right. Dick came about as a rhyme for the medieval nickname Rick. This German boy's name means "dominant ruler" and has a quaint dose of fifties charm packed into its four letters. If you want to give your little guy someone to look up to, then the original Boy Wonder, Dick Grayson, is perfect. Not only is he the world's greatest acrobat, he also follows the example set by his parental figure—Batman. Just like Dick embodies Batman's bravery and intelligence, so too can baby look to you for guidance.
