Pádraig (Irish: [ˈpˠaːd̪ˠɾˠəɟ]), Pádraic (Irish: [ˈpˠaːd̪ˠɾˠəc]) or Páraic (Irish: [ˈpˠaːɾˠəc]) is an Irish male name deriving from the Latin Patricius, meaning "of the patrician class", introduced via the name of Saint Patrick. Patrick is the English version, via Old French.

Diminutives include Páidín (Anglicised as "Podge" and "Paddy"); the latter Anglicisation is often used, sometimes pejoratively, as a term for Irish people as a whole.
