Talk:Patrick (given name)
|WikiProject Anthroponymy||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
So since Patrick is derived from Patricius it doesn't mean Nobleman anymore?:(
The name of the saint was always Latinized as Patricius (also in St. Patrick's Latin autobiography), but (and I'm quoting directly from Hanks/Hodges here) "this may actually represent a Latinized form of some lost Celtic (British) name." (page 262) Wathiik 14:39, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
does anyone know what "Patrick" is in Faroese?
There's been a lot of vandalism on this page lately...isn't anyone gonna do something about it?
I fixed something and also added some info today. Wathiik 14:37, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
"Patrick Flanagan One of the possible canidates to be the Trickster."
What? There's no mention of this on Patrick Flanagan's page, nor is there a Wiki entry entitled "Trickster". I'm going to change his description to "an American inventor." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:06, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
From the article: "Other versions of Patrick include Padraic, Pat, Rick, Ricky, Patricia, Patar, Packy and Paco." Yet the Paco article says nothing about Patrick, and paco is short for the spanish Francisco. This is certainly the first I hear Paco being a variant of Patrick and am deleting it from the article. If anyone has evidence please feel free to add again. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:20, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
People named Patrick
Hi everyone! The list of People named Patrick grew rather long and became unreadable, so I went ahead and organized the Patricks into categories, like Actors, Musicians, Writers, Sports, etc. I really wasn't committed to the names of the categories, so feel free to change them. But grouping them by profession certainly makes for a better reading experience.
- Thanks, that's neat work.
- However, as Patrick is a common name, the list will probably be deleted from the article one day. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of people named Jacob for a precedent. – Fayenatic London 08:13, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
