revised Is there a rule about double negations that aren't meant as double negations (e.g. “We don't need no education”)?

comment Changes in English names of people
The name Richard is very old and its true origins may well be lost in the depths of time past. The name likely stems from Old English, since 'Ric' meant ruler and 'heard' meant hard. It is also feasible that with the advent of rhyming slang, Richard would be shortened to Rich and then to Rick and on to Dick. Much like William - Will - Bill.
