The first thing I think of when I hear the name Pat is a giant, feminist, lesbian. But that's just what I think.

Completely non-descript nickname from about 60 years ago. Uni-gender and seems lazy somehow. You might as well say "hey, you" as soon as call someone "Pat".

The word Pat means "boob" or "tit" in Danish, so this is a very funny sounding name in that part of the world. I would not name my child this if I had any Scandinavian family or plans on visiting there with my kid.

I know that this is just a nickname, but the word Pat kinda puts me off from the name.
