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.

He is so much better than any guy ive met or any other girl he's met. He makes the girl feel so much better about herself. He's all around funny, and never puts a girl down. But dont piss him off he will literally kill you.

A very attractive man who likes to be physically fit. He tends to hide behind his emotions by making excuses. Every girl wants him, but he is hard to get. If you do he is even harder to keep. He get's along best with girls named Brittany. Although, he does not admit liking them, Brittany will always be there for him. He should give her a shot.
Oh, stop acting like Patrick.

Most perfect guy ever. No questions. He's awkward and a little shy, but he's the sweetest and most thoughtful person in the world. He brings out the absolute best in people. He knows the exact words to make anyone feel better. He might not be the strongest, most athletic guy ever, but he definitely is adorable and more than amazing. Whoever ends up with Patrick should never regret it.
Patrick asked me out!
He's weak.
But he calls me beautiful everyday.

Patrick, you are amazing!

The love of your life. The guy who's eyes you could just stare into all day. The guy who teases you and plays with your fingers. The guy who promised he'd love you forever and writes you love notes. The boy who makes you feel like a princess. The boy who everyone knows for his humor and sarcastic comments. If you have patrick, take care of him because he's something special. You won't forget him. I promise.
You are so lucky you have Patrick!

Patrick is the boy with nothing to regret. He lives life to the fullest with smiles and laughs with his friends. He always has a joke to share and is always making others smile and laugh no matter what. He cares about his friends and family and is honest and kind. He may sometimes hurt feelings with his jokes but he is the one person you just can't stay mad at. He'll make ya smile just by looking at him because he's so ridiculous and stupid. He is secretly smart but doesn't show it much. He is gorgeous and sporty. He is strong but immature. Ya can't help but love him.
Patrick is the funniest person ever!
Lol he makes me laugh everyday!!
