Actually, this is a Dutch name and we don't use the word Dick the way you use it. I personally associate the name with the Dutch word "dik" which means "fat". On the whole, I don't really like this name.

I actually used to like this name a lot. However, when talking to my friends one day about names we liked, I mentioned this, and they started to laugh hard.

Dick is not a diminutive: it is a short form of Diederik (and more of a contracted form for the spelling Diederick). If it were a diminutive, it would have the suffix -ie or -y, or -je (although the latter is least often seen with this name). Dutch diminutives are very specific in that regard. [noted -ed]

A well-known Dutch bearer of this name is the film director Dick Maas (b. 1951), although in his case the name is a variant form of Dirk.

As Lucille mentioned, Dick can also be derived from the name Dirk, itself a derivative of Diederik. Additionally, it is sometimes spelled without the c, as in the case of Dik Trom, whose real name is Dirk and who is the main character in a well-known series of children's books written by Dutch writer C. Joh. Kieviet.
