This is the real name of the Phantom from the Phantom of the Opera, although his name is not mentioned in Andrew Lloyd-Webber's play or in the movie version of the play. Erik, an intelligent but lonely, miserable man, cast out of society for his terribly deformed face, longs for the affection of the lovely, young soprano, Christine Daaƫ, whom he has trained. Christine, inevitably, does not return his love, for she is engaged to another.

This spelling of the name is found in the Icelandic Flatey Book. Erik the Red is the father of Lief, Erik's Son. It is spelled as Erik in both the Icelandic text and Danish translations as opposed to the Eric used in the English version.

I think this name is very gentleman like, as well as cute. "Erik" is a name I would name one of my future children.

I like this spelling a lot more than "Eric". "Erick" is okay too, but this spelling is my favorite.

I just adore this name, and not just because I'm a fan. I like this spelt with a k instead of a c. It seems stronger to me.

Erik is the real name of Magneto from X-Men.
-- Alchemist  3/12/2007
The spelling with a "K", to me, helps the name to retain a stronger Scandinavian association - that is, when one actually sees it written.

Erik is my brother's name. I just love it. I've never known another person with his name's spelling. Everyone spells it wrong, just like all my siblings names (including mine).

It's interesting how sometimes we change the spellings of names depending on what we use them for. If I was to give my child this name, I would spell it Eric, with a C. But if I were using the name for a character in a story, I'd probably spell it Erik or Erick. I actually rather prefer to spell it Erik. It's a pretty cool name.

My husbands name is Erik. I really like this name. He does not like when people misspell it by writing it as Eric, Erick or even Aric. Good name, very masculine. Really fits him very well.
-- melarulz  5/9/2008
This is my name. I don't particularly like it, but I don't hate it either. It's SO ANNOYING when people spell my name Eric or even Erick. What's next, Eryk, Aric, or Erique? I don't know.

This was my great grandfather's name. It's really cool, and I think it is too unused in Norway. But in Denmark it is very popular.
-- EllyKash  10/27/2008
I think Erik looks much nicer than Eric when written down. Overall, a nice name. I like it.

Also a masculine name in Croatia.

Erik is also used quite frequently in the Netherlands (this also goes for the spelling Eric), where it is pronounced as follows: AY-rik. [noted -ed]

Possibly the coolest most masculine name out there. I love how it sounds and how it looks. This name truly molds to people and is a classic one to have. If I were a boy I'd want my name to be Erik.
-- slapshort58  1/7/2011
I don't like this name, I just imagine Erik the Dick.
-- DidiGiraffe  4/17/2011
I prefer Eric.
-- Joy12  5/23/2011
Also Croatian. [noted -ed]

I like Eric much better... Erik looks... how can I say this nicely? It looks... disgusting to me. It looks like someone vomited right on the paper where it's written. I don't know why I like Eric so much better. I will say that when I meet someone named Eric or Erik, I think to myself, "I hope to God that it's Eric." And I get pissed and annoyed if it's not.

French composer Eric Satie.

This is the name of my best friend. In Dutch the pronouncement of the e in Erik is as the ee in deer of like the ea in bear.
-- Kaat5  2/28/2012
Also very commonly used in Hungary as a masculine first name. [noted -ed]
-- Rin_0911  4/8/2012
I am in love with this name, I like it way better spelled like this with a K than the usual ERIC spelling.
-- michelle.ramirez  4/25/2012
I prefer Eric, only because that's the classic spelling and I'm a stickler for traditional spellings.
