Patrick is a male given name of Latin origin, derived from the Roman name Patricius, which means "father" or "nobleman". An alternative meaning could be derived from Old English elements Pǣga, of unknown meaning, and rice, meaning ruler. The name Patrick is also associated with the Irish and Scottish name Padraig, which is derived from the Latin Patricius. The name Patrick has a rich history and culture, with its most famous bearer being Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. In the 5th century, Saint Patrick adopted the name from Latin Patricius, and he is traditionally credited with Christianizing Ireland. The name Patrick became popular in Ireland around the 17th century, as it was considered too sacred to be given to laypeople before that time. Today, the name Patrick is used globally and holds various meanings, such as "noble" and "son of Patrick".
