I named my son Patrick when he was born in Sept 2020. My mom hated it and doesnt want anyone to call him "Pat." I love the name, it is unique yet still traditional. I hope my son grows up to love his name too :)

My husband's name is James Patrick and he goes by Patrick. No nick names except for a few people call him Pat. He answers to it but doesn't really like it. I love Patrick and love saying it. It'suits him well and rolls off the tongue perfectly.

12/20/2022 1:45:12 PM

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.

12/12/2022 11:29:34 AM

Awesome name, though I don't meet too many other Patricks (as perhaps indicated by the number of Patricks that have actually typed something here).

12/2/2022 5:33:26 PM

11/23/2022 4:40:02 PM

I called my son Patrick. It's a good strong name. I thought it was unusual but It'seems to be on the rise as I now know 4 Patricks born within 6 months of my son. I also call him Paddy as It'seems to suit a little toddler

11/14/2022 7:35:52 PM

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.

11/6/2022 4:59:38 AM

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"

11/4/2022 6:33:34 AM

My boyfriends name is Patrick(he was born on St. Patrick's Day) he loves his name. I love his name. I call him Patrick and Pat mostly everyone calls him Pat.

11/1/2022 7:43:56 AM

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 4:00:18 AM

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)?

10/8/2022 8:35:30 AM

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!

9/22/2022 3:49:34 PM

Great name! Strong and classic; not at all trendy. I would name a son this.

9/18/2022 8:07:58 PM

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. ?

11/30/2021 5:24:18 PM

I am 25. I don't meet that many Patricks. People tend to take liberty with the name and shorten it to "Pat" even'though I never introduce myself as Pat. I have no complaints with the name. It's solid. Don't call me PATTY.

11/18/2021 6:12:00 AM

Love this name, but my wife doesn't. So my son will be a Charles.
