Richards are sometimes called Dick (my grandpa is Richard 'Dick') and the Richards I went to school with were always Rick or Ricky. None of them were ever called a dick. The family I knew with the surname of Johnson was never called penis, even though yes, we all know a penis was called a Johnson. My cousin Peter has never been called anything other than Peter.
Now, if a child was Richard 'Dick', I'm sure he'd be teased all the time.

Richard is a pretty popular name. In the case of the William you knew, he would have been teased regardless of what his name was.
Foxy as an "attractive" term is used in a rather derogatory way. Silver fox is another not-so-great term.
Even if it is used mostly for women, that still doesn't make it okay to use it for men. Other animals, such as Bear or Pike, don't have those rather strong negative associations.
