Patterson is an English and Irish patronymic surname, from the given name Pat or Pate, a diminutive of Patrick, which comes from the Latin patricius, meaning a patrician or nobleman. Patrick is primarily common in Ireland and Scotland but spurred many surnames in northern England as well, like Patten, Patrickson, and Pattinson. Patterson family history enters the books with William Patrison, noted as a witness in the Episcopal Register of Aberdeen in 1446. Patterson genealogy includes many notable people, such as Olympic gymnastics gold medalist Carly Patterson, British Admiral Wilfrid Patterson, and bestselling novelist James Patterson.
