Are you suggesting that the Gothic chief Theodoric had a Greek name or are you suggesting that there was a separate name Theodorikon? I think the latter would be much more likely. The Roman form of Theodorikon could have influenced the spelling of Theodoric , or perhaps the Greek name directly influenced the Germanic name, since the Ostrogoths settled somewhere just to the north of Greece before they moved towards Italy, if I recall correctly.
