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.

What happens while playing Tetris at a fast pace and making a move that wasn't meant to happen, such as putting a peice in the wrong place, and it throws off your entire game.
Last night I was playing Tetris and I pulled a Patrick!

I lost that game because I pulled to many Patricks!

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.

A total douchebag who dates every hot girl in sight and tries to cheat on them with their friends. He goes around thinking he's all that with his piercings that make him look totally gay.
Person 1: "That dude over there thinks he's so cool but he looks like a loser."
Person 2: "He looks like a Patrick."

flaming gomer who has no life outside of the walls of his mothers house despite the fact that he is 22 years old. Has no future career other then night manager at wal mart. his patheticism reaches levels to were he tends to spend more time,money, and sexual release on his shitty car and COD. BE WARNED: to all those looking to develop a relationship with a Patrick you must have skillz of equal or greater quality then his mother possesses in the areas of cooking chicken fingers and fries(his only meal) and be able to take chicken off of bones.
hey girl you should of met my last boyfriend he was a real patrick.

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.
person#1: dude did you see that ugly motha fucka?
person#2: yeah man thats patrick
