March has not yet brought spring, with the Mid-Atlantic cowering under a fresh White Doom From Above warning for tomorrow and Monday, but already the mangling of the name of the patron saint of Ireland is well advanced.  Every year on Twitter, @paddynotpatty undertakes the Sisyphean labor of demonstrating to multitudes apparently impaired by drink that the diminutive of the saint's name is Paddy , not Patty , having derived from...

It is never too early to issue a warning. St. Patrick's Day will be upon us in a few weeks, and, while people are still reasonably sober they may heed this caution.  The diminutive of the saint's name is Paddy ; it derives from the Irish version of his name, Padraig.  Many people on these shores mistakenly refer to St. Patty's Day , but Patty  is the diminutive of Patricia .

HAPPY ST. PADDY'S DAY. No offense. Until recently "Paddy" was always thought of as a term of endearment. I still think of it that way, as do my Irish friends and relatives.But, naturally, in this age of political correctness, "Paddy" is officially no longer affectionate. Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (Tenth Edition, 1993) defines "Paddy" as "Irishman" and adds this: "often taken to be offensive."The Ninth Edition (1986) doesn't say that. Nor does the unabridged Merriam-Webster's Third New International Dictionary (1961)

On Twitter, @paddynotpatty has had a merry time of it pointing out that the diminutive of St. Patrick is St. Paddy , from the Irish name Padraig, insisting that "St. Patty" is simply wrong. Well, actually, that's only half the fun. The other half has been retweeting the ignorant comments of Americans. The responses tend to follow the pattern of "His name is Patrick, not Padrick. " Of course, since he was a Romano-Briton (and not Irish), if you had asked him what his name was, he would have said Patricius.* "Patrick" is modern English.

On Twitter, @paddynotpatty points out, "It's that time of year again. " Indeed it is, when the mock-Irish and faux-Irish will chatter cheerfully about "St. Patty's Day. "  Patty  is a woman's nickname, diminutive of Patricia, a flat cake of chopped meat, a meat pie, or a peppermint candy.  The diminutive of Padraic (Irish) or Patrick (English) is Paddy .  Get it right and reward yourself with a Guinness.

It's not the most difficult assignment -- describing the best things about St. Patrick's Day. Actually, most (especially many at b ) would say that the most popular thing about St. Paddy's is also the best thing -- the drinking. Yes, that's fun (and made our list), but there are other reasons to forgo your sensible fear of gingers and head out on the greenest of green days. Here are seven reasons the holiday is one of our fave days of the year. 1. Unabashed liver damage: Look, any holiday could be an all-day drinking affair -- just ask our inappropriate Uncle Herb.

Cephas Thomas didn't know whether he'd laugh, cry or give a speech when "Paddy" Culbert finally returned to town. He knew it would be a moment he'd never forget. Two years ago, Thomas, security director at the Renaissance Harborplace, was at work in the lobby when Culbert, a New Hampshire businessman, happened to be driving by. The New Englander had been working crazy hours and was tired. He didn't realize he was about to have a stroke. What Thomas did over the next 30 minutes might have saved Culbert's life.
