“Richie” is a boy’s name. In order to figure out the meaning of “Richie”, though, we need to look at the name in its full form - which is “Richard”.

English, French and German Origins of “Richard”
“Richard” is a name with some pretty great connotations!

Guys called Richard are thought to be brilliant rulers, as well as being powerful and rich men - English, German and French origins of the name all agree on this.

Three English kings have been called Richard, and King Richard IV is a fictional character in the BBC comedy series Blackadder.

The first King Richard is thought to be the greatest - Richard I was a crusading knight, who earned himself the name “King Richard Coeur de Lion” (Lion-heart) for his bravery.
