Meaning:Patrician; Noble; Son of Patrick
Patrick is a boy's name meaning “patrician,” “noble,” and “son of Patrick.” Though also a common Anglicized version of the Celtic name Padraig, this title has its roots in Latin. Known for allegedly driving the snakes out of Ireland and converting the nation to Christianity, St. Patrick is probably the most well-known and celebrated bearer of this title. So highly regarded, this name was not given to the layman until around the 17th century, from which it blossomed in popularity as an ode to the honorable figure. With such a rich history and culture that has spread far and wide around the globe, the name has a wealth of opportunities for you to continue a tradition, or even start your own.
