    Well. I like both. lol I know that's not very helpful. I guess my only thing is I would choose Derek because people tend to spell it that way. Otherwise he might have his name misspelled by other people his whole life.

    My brother in law's name is Derek and I can just hear his mother now, "It's Derek, spelled the British way." LOL.

    I think in NC people tended toward spelling it Derrick.

    I like the spelling "Derek". I don't like the spelling "Derrick" though, because it's a thing, not just a name. And that bothers me for some reason

    My DS1 is Derek and I didn't even know there was more than one way to spell it until after he was born! So that's my vote
