Noun Challenge: July 10, 2014
Today’s noun: Patricia
Kind of a weird noun to write a blog post about. I don;t have any close friends named Patricia that I could tell you about.
How about I tell you about the name and about some people with the name? Sounds good to me.
Let’s start with the meaning. The name itself means noble. It is the feminine form of Patricius, which later became Patrick.
Okay now to the fun stuff! Here are some famous people named Patricia. Let’s make another list!
- Patty Griffin – Folk/country artist
- Patricia Bath – First African American to complete a residency in Ophthalmology
- Patricia Krenwinkel – Member of Charles Manson’s “family”; convicted of 1969 murders
- Patricia Heaton – Actress known for Everybody Loves Raymond
- Patricia Arquette – Actress
- Patricia Richardson – Actress known for 90’s sitcom Home Improvement
- Patricia Roberts Harris – First African American woman to hold a cabinet position
- Patricia Dunn – Director and chairwoman of Hewlett-Packard
- Patricia Neal – Actress known for The Day the Earth Stood Still and Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Of course, there are more, but I think that’s good for now.
Hopefully you learned something!
As always, sorry for spelling and grammatical errors. Have a fantastic day and I’ll see you tomorrow!
