The pet name for Richard, Dick. Where did that one come from? The -ick part of it is not difficult to analyze -- look at Rick. Richard is pronounced Rickard in German, so it is easy to see whence the -ick arose. The D in Dick is thought to have come about when native English speakers, during the Middle Ages, had trouble trilling the initial R as would have been done in Norman French.

Weird. I have never even heard of that Muppet character. But hey look on the bright side. U2 had a song named after us (albeit briefly).

That character was an actual grouse muppet and I think it was only on 1 show ever.

Yeah, that Trevor song was neat too. I mentioned in a previous thread how I could never find anything with my name on it when I was growing up like mugs, or keychains. I used to sit in a front of the tv during a show called Romper Room where the female host would say " I see Billy, Julie, etc" but the bitch would never ever say my name. Very traumatizing to a little kid but having a U2 song called Trevor is cool.

Roi. No special pronunciation - my mom just got a little fancy with the spelling. French people always think I'm conceited however.
