In Scotland we would use Paddy just for Patrick anyway, nothing to do with being Irish. Not sure if that is relevant to the discussion just wanted to join in lol.

Too many syllables. In the States we shorten everything down to as few syllables as we can. Patrick is shortened to Pat.

Isn't the correct Irish name for Patrick, Padrid or Padric? But ya, here in the NAU we use Patty, and trust me,I know how much real Irish folks hate the term St. Patty's Day!

Don't you have any Irish in you?

Yeah but Newfies have their own culture and stuff, obviously a lot of Irish ancestory but very different in a lot of ways, people often think a newfie is the same thing as an irishman which is not the case ;)

Newfies drink screech (that'll put hair on your chest) not whiskey... this is probably the biggest difference

Newfies play accordians too.

Other then that its kinda close haha

I absolutely HATE that! I though Daniel Cleary was weird sounding, but Danny reminds me of little Ronnie Howard.... I also HATE Bill Clements, Nicky Lidstrom, thank God that jackass is off the air!

I thought Patric was Porric in Irish.
Or Porric is Patric in American.
