Origin: Ghana

Region Origin: Western Africa

Patricia is a female given name of Latin origin, derived from the Latin word "patrician," which means "noble". It is the feminine form of the masculine given name Patrick. The name Patricia has been used among English speakers in Scotland since the 18th century, although there is no reference to it in the Bible. The origin of the name Patricia can be traced back to Ancient Rome, where social and political divides categorized civilians into two groups: plebeians and patricians. Patricians were individuals who ranked high in society, and the name Patricia is a reflection of this noble status. The name has also been associated with Patricia of Naples, an Italian virgin and saint of noble nature, who was possibly related to the Roman Emperor Constantine I. The name gained popularity after Queen Victoria named her granddaughter Patricia in 1886.
