A family name more common in Great Britain (England for some of you)than the name Smith. Most of the families with this name emigrated from Liverpool to the southern states across to Texas, and are well populated in California. Hicks is a short form for Richardson, and means Son of Richard. In Belgium the name is spelled Hickx, because its origin is from the French XYZ, or "icyx, igrec, zed." Richard refers to Richard the Lionheart, who was one of the French Kings who ruled England and the name is in its original French "X".
'Enry 'Iggins loses the H in Liverpudlian, in the same way that icyx is spelled with an H in front of it sometimes, but see the famous auto racer Jacky Icyx. Richard's last name was Plantagenet, but his bastard sons were named X, and some served as peers of the realm. Dr. Michael Hicks is the Editor in Chief of American Music Magazine. David Hicks is a prominent trial lawyer in the San Francisco Bay Area named in 2007 as one of the top 10 lawyers in the Greater East (San Francisco) Bay by the East Bay Business Times. Robert Hicks built the cell phone systems in Belgium and Germany for Airtouch and was COO for Globalstar which put up cell phone satellites around the world. The 3 are brothers.

Derogatory term for a someone from the country. Somewhere between a bumpkin an a redneck, though they tend to get wrongly lumped in either category. Unlike bumpkins, they are aware of the world beyond their rural setting, and probably have lived briefly in the city before returning to the quieter life they prefer. Unlike rednecks, they are generally educated, nice people who don't chastise non-religious people and aren't racist.
Loser: Yawl check out the new guy in the mail room? 'Bout time we hired us a real life redneck.
Me: I'd say he's more of a hick.
Loser: What's the difference?
Me: Yo momma.

-Doesn't go to KKK meetings
-May or may not be imbreeded
-Wears overalls and straw hats
-Doesn't always wear shoes
-Are lucky to have a computer
-Might be seen chewing on a hay straw
-Doesn't drink beer; drinks moonshine
-Doesn't live in trailer parks like rednecks; quite a few live in suburban houses, but most live in the southern foothills, Appalachia, and vast farmlands throughout the Midwest.
-Is less racist and bigoted towards differences, but is still serious about defending whatever their particular way of life may be
-Are usually more hospitable, especially in the mountains of the South, or the massed farms of the Midwest.
-Aren't always as violent as rednecks.
I went down to eastern Tennessee and saw a bunch of hillbilly-ish people, but they were all nice to me, and they were all wearing shoes. I heard some talking about how stupid the KKK was...

1. a noun; A derogatory term describing or referring to a person from a rural background or community. The noun hick usually describes lower class whites raised in rural areas on trailer parks or hog farms. Generally used more for Midwesterners and people from southern Ontario than Southerners (see: redneck)
General defining characteristics of a hick: Protestant upbringing, usually Baptist; racist and sexist opinions; does not attend collage ; dumber than a post. They often have poor grammar and drive pickup trucks. They care very little for the environment and often do not realize that their livelihood farming, is dependent upon a healthy and stable environment. However they are not solely farmers. In fact most hick's live in rural areas and live off welfare because they are too stupid to know how to farm.
They can usually be identified through the usage of the following words. Y'all, Yous (They fail to recognize that you can be both plural and singular) We's Thems, etc.
Thus they have poor comprehension of vocabulary and basic tenants of the English language.
Kerri Lee Smith: Thems people from the city are such butt fucking idiots.
Me: I can't believe how stupid my roommate is. I cannot believe she just said that yet spent all weekend being fucked in the ass, thus failing to see the irony of such a statement.
I wish she would just drive her pickup truck back to her fucking trailer park.

Further Example: (In hick writing) "Yous people turn them alarm Clocks of! Its 1:30 PM in the morning! I cant gets no sleep cuz of yous butt fucking idiots! I'm horney!"

"I pokes my urethra with a Pencil to get them bacterias out"

N.B. My Roommate Kerri Lee Smith is such a huge fucking hick. She calls all people from the city butt fucking idiots and usually demonstrates poor grammar. E.g using expressions such as "good on ya", "sure as fuck",
