Ricardas is pretty cool imo
It's really quite simple - too many people would pronounce Ricardas as spanish Ricardo (c is pronounced as k), while in reality it should be pronounced exactly as word "rich" in english, and then -ardas ending. In order to avoid this confusion in pronounciation, he became Richard on ATP, at least it sounds like it should in Lithuanian
