Anita,

It could be either Patrick or Patricia in the U.S. also.

Anita,

As Donay said, the short form for both is Pat, or you can use Pattie for a girl and Paddy (Irish) for a boy.

Bill,

Thank you for adding information to the post. I really would like you to also post comments on the "como digo isso em inglês" section as I think it would be make this section's answers even more accurate. But, of course, only if you have enough time for that.


All the best,
