I mean given popular use of his first name as an insult I think he should go by something else.
Should he change his first name?
@acer51: His name is Richard. The name "Dick" is short for Richard. Just pretend Bruce calls him "Richard." if you're too sensitive to the name Dick.
Personally, I cracked up every time Alfred referred to Robin / Nightwing as "Master Dick" on Batman: the Animated Series.
The name itself isn't rude at all. It is only as funny as the reader perceives it to be. So his name isn't rude: WE are rude for seeing it that way.
Fun fact: the word dick in its vulgar usage came about both 1. Before it was a nickname for Richard, and 2. Before it was slang for a detective.
