"I enjoy having this as a name. I don't mind being called Ricky since I was called that throughout my childhood. I find it annoying when people think that it's short for Richard, which in my case it is not. I also grew up with another Rick (which happens to be the same age as me too at the time, it's probably one of those x-files things I guess) in my neighborhood, which made it that much more fun to mess with peoples' heads."

"My birth name is Ricardo, and in High School my friend Mike always called me Rick! It has stuck to me until today. I like it both Rick and Ricardo, one used as a nickname, and one used in a formal manner. Did I mention I am chinese, probably the only asian with a spanish 1st name. My Mom liked Ricky Ricardo... who could blame her! :)" Dec. 31, 2008:
