In English, a man's name meaning "a patrician, or a noble".

Some folks name their kids Patrick because of their Irish background, or after Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.

Patricks range from the super athletic (such as Patrick Eaves) to the theatrical elite (such as Patrick Swayze) to great political thinkers (such as Patrick Pearse).

Patrick can be shortened to Pat and Paddy, and can be feminized as Patty, Pat, or Patricia. There are over three dozen different translations for the name.

Patrick is an iconic name for the Irish people, especially the Irish men, though Russians, Dutchmen, and others who aren't necesarily Irish or Irish-related have been named Patrick, too.

Interestingly, the accredited source of the name, Saint Patrick, wasn't Irish at all! He was actually a Roman citizen of Britain.
There have been several PATRICKs throughout history. Saint Patrick was a great Scottish missionary, Patrick Pearse wrote plays and supported the Easter Rising, and Paddy Bradley's an Irish footballer.

As for me, Patrick, I hope to become a great actor and singer. Maybe even a writer or director.

Noun - A shaft of Human cockmeat in the size range of 1.5 to 50 microns in length, or the width of Human hair. A Patrick is typically approximately 2 to 3 inches wide. Because of these dimensions, many nickname it a McPud.

Patrick is a tall, tan, and somewhat muscular man, but is the biggest fucker in the world. He might seem cool and fun but once you get with him, he will do your mom. He doesnt care about anyones feelings and only tries to get in bed with every girl and he thinks he is hot stuff once you get to know him.
Girl 1: Wow Patrick seems pretty cool
Girl 2: Dont ever say that again, he is the biggest fucker in the world, I thought that too but he ended up doing my mom.
