Patience Name Meaning

English and Scottish: from Middle English, Old French patience (Latin patientia, a derivative of patiens ‘patient’), hence a nickname, given perhaps to a notably long-suffering individual or to someone who had represented this abstract virtue in a morality play. However, this was also a personal name for men and women and the surname may derive from this use.
