As usual I'm a day late and a few dollars short but below you will find the meaning of my name.  There are many celebrities, from all genre, who share this noble name but the one I always remember is Patricia Neal.  Even as a child I thought she had the most unusal voice and I loved it.


Patricia (pronounced pa-TRISH-ah) is a common female given name of Latin origin. It is derived from the Latin word patrician, meaning "noble". The masculine form of the name is Patrick. The name Patricia was the second most common female name in the United States according to the 1990 US Census. It is commonly shortened to 'Pat', 'Patsy', 'Patty/Pattie/Patti', 'Trish', 'Trisha/Tricia', or 'Trixie'. These diminutives are sometimes used as names in their own rights.

In Portuguese and Spanish-speaking countries, the name Patricia is common as well, pronounced pa-TREE-see-a. In Polish, the variant is Patrycja.
