The background to National Derek Day

In 1943, the name Derek made its debut on the US popularity charts. Following that, it began to rise in the rankings of the most popular boy names in America. Derek placed in the Top 100 in 1970. It held the rank for twenty-five years in a row before losing it in 1996. The 1980s saw the name reach its pinnacle of popularity. Derek was dancing around the number 50 spot on the charts at the time.

Derek is still a Top 100 pick in New York. The name pays homage to Derek Jeter, a beloved Yankee in the city. Derek is regarded as a powerful and manly name. Unlike the names that sound French or Spanish, this one has a “no-nonsense” German quality.

The origins of the name Derek can be traced to a bearer who ruled Keppel, Gelderland, in the early 14th century. After his death, his son Derek van Keppel continued to use his father’s name as his own. Then, in the Middle Ages, the name made its way to England. A considerable number of Flemish weavers left Flanders and settled in England.

King Edward III urged and invited them to relocate to England. The goal of this endeavor was to advance the English weaving sector. They brought their spinning wheels and the name Derek.

The Old Germanic name “Theodoric” was the source of the modern name Derek. It comes from the words “rīc,” which means “power or ruler,” and “þeud,” which means “people” or “race.” Diederik is a German name, and Derek is the short form of that name in English.
