Personally, I'm not a fan of cutesy nicknames like Ricky, but if you like it, why not?

How about Richard?

I'm another who thinks of EE Bianca. It's a strong no from me.

If your child is likely to grow up surrounded by a regional accent that pronounces Ricky as Rick-eh/-ay, I wouldn't. I know a lovely little Ethan who is reception age, and who probably has no idea that his name isn't actually Eefan.

Or nn for Frederick.

Rick, not Ricky

A mainstream name not associated too much with any particular social class. A bit too ordinary for me.
