There's also the possibility that this is part of the satire upon the Gothic. "Richard" is a very plain and ordinary name, after all, not like "Udolpho" or "Adrian" or "Cholmondeley" or whatever.
What goes against this, however, is that as far as I recall there is no commentary upon the excessively ordinary names of other characters, e.g. "Catherine" and "Henry."
