"We named my second son Derrick. He was born in 2000. It took us months and months to decide on his name but once Derrick was said, we immediately agreed, no more discussion. We live in the Southern US, so I thought the 'rick' was the most appropriate spelling. He uses the nickname Derk, also." May. 9, 2015:
