What do you think of using Patron (male) as a name, as opposed to [name]Payton[/name] or [name]Patrick[/name]?

I”m not looking to use it or anything, just thinking. : )

Um… When I first read the title I thought it said [name]Parton[/name], which made me think of [name]Dolly[/name]. Patron might be a bit too word-y I feel.

It makes me think of tequila - not something I would want for my son.

Personally, I wouldn’t use it. I’m not sure it’s a word that can move into the name category.


First thought “As in tequila?”
Second thought “As in, ‘he’s a patron of the arts’?”
Third thought “Patron saint of sinners”
Fourth thought “Ay, patron”

If someone told me they named their kid Patron, I would jump right on namberry and tell y’all about it. Basically, I think it’s not a good name. At all.

Thanks for the input! I did not think of any of the associations you guys mentioned, except the ”patron saint” relationship. But I see what you mean. I had a similar situation with the ever classical [name]Charlotte[/name]!! [name]Love[/name] the name, but I can”t seem to step away from ”harlot”, unfortunately!

First, I thought of Patron [name]Tequila[/name]. Then I thought of the word “patronizing”. Two not so good associations in a name. Sorry!

Ditto tequila. Much better to find out now than later :slight_smile:
