    According to his Confessio, Patrick was born in vico banavem taburniae, somewhere along the west coast of Great Britain. Vico means 'little settlement' or 'village'. Bannavem is the placename. Taburniae is a suffix meaning 'of the Taburnia', probably relating to a tribal group. However, it has been argued that the correct spelling should be Bannaventa Burniae possibly meaning the 'Promontory Hill of the Burnia'.

    I say that he is more of a mix between English and Welsh. I would say that he is more of an Anglo-Welsh man born in Dublin, Ireland.

    Source(s): It is a rumour that I just made up. Maybe it's not true but, it's really some juicy gossip about St. Patrick.

    He was born on the west coast of Great Britain, but it has never been discovered where exactly.
