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.

The biggest dickhead in the world, although he only has 2 inches of pleasure. He is a dipshit. Unlike most guys that have abs and pecks, Patrick has flab and boobs. He will play you like a nintendo. He is a man whore that is addicted to women. A girl can be his ass. Everything looks decent but his face.

Normally a huge doucher. Usually can be seen executing the "front tuck" while walking around trying to look like a hardass. Also, most Patricks feel as if they can "claim" any woman they want.
ME: "I think im gonna ask Michelle to the movies"
PATRICK: "bahah dude your such a fag because i claimed her like two weeks ago"

Sometimes can be cool, but other times can be a real dick head. Acts perverted often. Brags about everything he wins, and doesn't admit if he loses. A cool guy mostly. He has many friends, likes sports, and makes untruthful accusations and assumptions on what he has no idea about.
"Omg that guy is acting so patrick!"
"Dude stop being patrick."
"Don't be like patrick, it's not cool."

A massive homo with a huge nose, will pretend to be generous but only does it if it benefits him in some way. Quick to point out your flaws but will be a douche if you point out his. Acts and looks gay, won't care about your problems but will expect you to help with his
Guy 1: Patrick is such a dick sometimes
Guy 2: Just ignore him, he'll die young when doctors won't care for him anymore
