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.

|ˈpatrik| noun
Six foot, one hundred and eighty pounds of unadulterated douche. For reasons of jealousy, he hates on precious princesses. This irrational hatred could also be attributed to his longing for a title that rates highly from an alliteration perspective. Patrick’s possesses a homoeotic demeanor, which, is expressed in the form of exaggerated hand gestures, strutting and twirling. Patrick can be seen prancing around his office sporting what some would deem ‘poor drag queen attire’ i.e. a plastic bag and grey wig combo. Unbeknown to onlookers, this embarrassing act is in fact a hunting ritual for spare cake.
“That one there, that's Patrick. He is one of the dumbest girls you will ever meet.”

Patrick is one who is famous by the ladies and tends to date more than one girl at once without them knowing. He treats his girls well he just likes variety and knows he's capable. Don't let yourself think that your the only one it's sad and heartbreaking but thats just how they are. If you do manage to get one all to yourself you are extremly lucky and must be a girl who has their life together and is healthy and well taken care of, because a Patrick won't take a hoe as a serious girlfriend. He's charming, desirable and attractive. He keeps it real and always keeps his life together and expects the same from everyone else. Patricks are also known fighters and don't put off with what they call "unessecary conflicts."
"For a man whos got his life on track he sure sees alot of girls"

"What do you expect he's a Patrick."
