Derived from the Latin word patricius, Patrica is a feminine name meaning “noble.” The term patricius was used to refer to the patrician or the ruling class in ancient Rome. Historically, the patricians held massive estates, high political offices, and all the priesthood ranks. There was even a belief that they could directly communicate with the Roman gods and that they alone were qualified to perform sacred rites. So, if you think your munchkin is a blessing from the heavens above, they’ll be sure to wear this noble name with ease.
