Name Meaning

Irish, Scottish, and English (of Norman origin): from the Anglo-Norman French, Middle English, and Older Scots personal name Patrick (Old Irish Patraicc), derived from Latin Patricius ‘son of a noble father, member of the patrician class’. This was the name of a Christian saint, a 5th-century Romano-Briton who became the apostle and patron saint of Ireland, and it was largely as a result of his fame that the personal name was so popular from the Middle Ages onward. In Ireland the surname is usually Scottish in origin, from Scottish settlers in Ulster in the 17th century. See also Peden and McPadden , derived from pet forms of Old Irish Patraicc.

Scottish and Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Scottish and Irish Gaelic Mac Phádraig ‘son of Patrick’.

English: variant of Partridge .
