Ok, I'll be the bad guy here -- please remember the playground folks! Any boy with this name is bound to be exposed to, "Dirk the Dork". Just sayin'.

The name sounds like 'dirt' and 'jerk' in English, but it's ugly in any language.

It's my boyfriend's name and he's Dutch. I didn't like it when he told me his name (to a Danish girl it sounds weird), but now I love it! It's pronounced: Deerk, but as a short sound.

Origin is Diederik, old German name meaning either "Powerful among the people" or "Protector of the people".

It sounds like the name of a cocky bad boy type, a cowboy. Dirk = dick + jerk. Still, I'm a sucker for the bad boys. *sigh* lol.
