You do realise there are lots of non-Irish people with this name? I wouldn't assume everyone called Patrick was Irish.

It is quite popular for those with an Irish origin. Especially people born in America. I am pretty sure the name is technically Latin.

It's origin is Latin - Patricius. There are versions of the same name in many countries, not just Ireland.

It's not Irish. Patrick is derived from the Latin patricius (a patrician, a nobleman). The name was made famous by St. Patrick (c. 385 - 461), a Christian Breton and Roman citizen who was a missionary to and later became the patron saint of Ireland.
