Anyone else notice he's got the same first and last name?

Ricky is short for Ricardo, Yes?

Is Ricky a nickname for Richard (equivalent to Ricardo)?

Can be: Rick, Rich, Richey, Ricky - but Rick & Ricky can also be short for Frederick.

I had a friend in school we all called Ricki, but her actual name was Erica...She hated the name Erica. If I remember correctly she was the first born, but her dad had wanted a son who he had planned to name Eric after the grandfather. So he named her Erica.

Ricki was cool.

Or. Carlos, depending on who's available.

I really, really hate anti-semantics.
