Dickon is an English masculine given name.

The name "Dickon" is derived from the old English name for Richard. Unlike Richard, Dickon is rarely shortened to Dick or Dickie, as it is already commonly considered a short form of the same name.

The first recorded literary reference to the name is of a painting of King Richard III entitled Dickon of York.[citation needed] Marjorie Bowen used that nickname to title for her historical novel Dickon (1929).
