I love it. I'm considering using it in the middle position though. I don't think you should worry about potentially being called Dick or Dicky- I don't think anyone would do that anymore, at least not here. I know several Richards -Ricks, Rikkis, Riches- and they've never had their name shortened to that. And people still use William despite Willy! I think you should go for it. It'd be a shame if such a handsome, classic name was passed over because of a few stupid nicknames

I think the name Richard is handsome, even if it is slightly dated. I don't think anyone would call him Dick or Dicky, except maybe at school as a taunt, but how many kids even know Dick is short for Richard really anyway? I know three Richards, two go by Rich and one by Richy, though I also like the nn Rick or Ricky as well.
