Easy to pronounce. I like it when It's shortened to Rick.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My son is called Patrick he is 9 and is without doubt a truly beautiful person on the outside and on the inside.

My name is Patrick Anthony Ryan, and though I indeed find my full name to be of high value and refreshingly epic, often'times if I introduce myself as Pat, a myrad of corruption and confusion ensues, everything from pad to pen'to pet comes back at me if I don't put a diligent effort towards enunciation. Patrick is a strong and fitting name regardless, especially for warriors, epic voyagers, and shamanic spiritual leaders.

12/09/2023 12:36:42

My name is Patrick. Everyone calls me Ricky for short. Some people ask why because they don't realize that the last four letters of the name Patrick are R-I-C-K. I don't mind being called Patrick or Ricky but i've never cared for it when someone calls me Pat unless It's a close family member.

11/10/2023 07:23:34

My name is Patrick, i rate the name as not many othe's share the name. Everyone i know refers to me as "Paddy", It's informal and I prefer this. Good name for a good person

My name is Patrick Christopher. My mom is catholic so I have two saints looking after me. I can say the name has been great for me. I don't like juniors so my son due in December will be named Luke Christopher but Patricks rule. Never been unemployed or girless. lol Also a great excuse to party on March 17th even if your not Irish...well every Patrick has a little Irish in them.

My eldest son is called Patrick after his father and his father. We call him Paddy-Joe which I just love although he'seems to have dropped the Joe part. I think It's a great strong and proper name. He can be Paddy-Joe with his family, Paddy with his mates and hopefully when he's all grown up and doing a proper job he can be Patrick. It works allways.

05/04/2023 21:13:32

I think it is a great name. I named one of my sons Patrick because my family is of Irish background. Just don't call him Pat. I can't stand it when people do that. We sometimes call him Packy, which suits him because he is a little go-getter.

05/04/2023 00:21:34

12/20/2022 13:45:12

I know a patrick we call him meat patty because he is annoying and round, he is incredibly rude and disruptive. one time in our music class we were learning, and this man walked into the room like "YOODELAY EEEE OOOOO" yodelling. he was yodeling. i don't like him, he has the hots for my bestie and i do not approve.

My boyfriend's name is Patrick and I love his name! I never have to spell it out to my friends, or say REALLY slow so that they have to pronounce it correctly. I do find it odd when sometimes people will call him Pat. When I look at him he doesn't seem like a Pat to me. Definitely a Patrick.

11/06/2022 04:59:38

My name is Patrick like so many othe's posting here. My family and loved ones call me "Patrick" Friends and co-workers call me "Pat" Depending on whose company I'm in, I'may be "Patrick or Pat" If my friends call me "Patrick," It'sounds funny. I hate it when my dad or ex-wife call me "Pat"

I'm a Patrick, and I like my name just fine. I was named after my Father and Grandfather. They were named after my Great Grandmother from Ireland who had the'surname Patrick. I feel honored to carry it. Close friends and family have always called me Pat, but coworkers and newer friends or acquaintances call me Patrick, which is what I prefer most of the time. Just don't EVER call us Patty. Ever.

10/27/2022 04:00:18

My name is Patrick. I wonder why there are so few young kids named Patrick. So you think It's because of the'saturday Night Live skits (if You're older) and that really dumb starfish (if You're younger)❤️

10/08/2022 08:35:30

this would be a great name, and i was going to name my daughter this, but then my aunt named her dog maggie, and you can't have the'same name as a family dog!

Without trying to be too personal or imposing, I would like to ask Kecia Nyman where her name comes from. Most of us were named after her, but she appears to be the original. As we are asked so much what nationality it is, I'm sure all of us would like to know It's origin. Also are you Finnish or Scandinavian❤️ There seems to be contradictory reports. If You'reply...thank you.

My name is Patrick Forest O❤️Neil when I was young I hated it because everyone called me Patty Hurst. If you don't know who that is google it. lol n the 70❤️s it was no fun being 8 year old and having your name turned into a meme before anyone knew what that was. As I have gotten older I have relaxed a lot. I have been referred to as ❤️It's Pat❤️ and funny story my grandson beli've I was named after Patrick starfish. Most people call me Pat and that's fine. Only one who ever really called me Patrick was my Mother when she was mad at me. And I humor the nick name Patty cakes, because the only people that call me that are either really good friends, or women who are inter'sted and want to flirt. Lol I give the name Patrick 9/10. That is an opinion from a professional Patrick so that's accurate. Have a nice day. ❤️
