What’s in a name?

St. Paddy’s Day Auction Bash. Wait, shouldn’t that be Patty’s Day. Ask any good Irishmen and they are likely to tell you that Patty’s is like nails on a chalkboard. It gnaws at them. It riles them up. It makes them want to fight… you know, more than usual. Here is the skinny. Paddy is derived from the Irish, Pádraig: the source of those mysterious, emerald double-Ds. Patty is the diminutive of Patricia, or a burger, and just not something you call a fella. There isn’t a sinner in Ireland that would refer to a Patrick as “Patty”. It’s as simple as that.
