So I looked it up.
His first name was 'Richard'.
Which also happens to be my father's first name. (Except he doesn't go by Richard either; his friends call him Dick.)
I feel like there's a moral here, but as usual I'm not sure what it is.
[I should note, even though it ruins the story a little, that Bucky's father's first name was also Richard, so maybe he was called Bucky by the family to distinguish him from his dad.]
