HOME DISCOVER ABOUT
Pet form of Patricia or Patrick. It is generally a girl's name; as a boy's name it is almost completely restricted to Irish communities. Its popularity does not seem to have been seriously affected by its use in derogatory senses in the general vocabulary, in America meaning ‘a dupe’ and in Australia ‘a homosexual’. It is sometimes used as an independent girl's name.
