Dierks isn’t exactly a common name. I mean I doubt there are any keychains with his name on there. And Dierks Bentley explains the struggle with a name like that.
“I’ve seen it spelled and pronounced wrong so many times,” Dierks told Glamour.
So where did this unique name come from exactly? Dierks is actually the maiden name of the singer’s great grandmother. Yeah, it’s LEGIT. So keep that tid bid of information in mind before you think of hating on the name.
“People tell me it’s a horrible name! Like maybe I should have gone by Buck Bentley?”
We think Dierks is JUST fine!
