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.
As for me, Patrick, I hope to become a great actor and singer. Maybe even a writer or director.
"Kick his ass dude!"
"Nah man... it was Patrick bro"
"Awww shit... leave it alone, that fucker will kill you"
"I didn't know Jesus went to this school"
"Nah dude... that guy right there, that's Patrick. But they are easily confused"
Patrick: You kidding me? Of course I am; however, would ya be kind enough to drive me for I fear I'm going to lose my motor skills around nine in the mornin' if ya know what I mean.
