Meaning of Patasa in Louisana language
I found my name in the UK Creole dictionary online @ http://www.cs.uky.edu/~raphael/private/creole.html. It states: “Patasa n. is the generic name applied to several species of freshwater fish of the sunfish family. A long time ago people made court-bouiIlon with sunfish”. A fish broth made with water, white wine, spices and butter. There are at least eight species of sunfish in Louisiana, including the Bluegill, Scarlet Sunfish, Red-Breasted Bream, Round Sunfish, Green Sunfish, Longear Sunfish, Redear Sunfish and Big-mouthed perch; A Big-mouth perch is a bass that is larger than the others and it has a mouth about as wide as that of a perch.
In addition to those findings, In a book, edited by Albert Valdan and Kevin J. Rottet called “The Dictionary of Louisiana French: As Spoken in Cajun, Creole, and American Indian Communities” on page 446, reads… patassa [patasa] n.m Any of various freshwater fish of the sunfish family (e.g. bluegill, warmouth, crappie, bream) often locally called “perch” or “sun perch” (although not technically true perch).
Sterling A. Brown said in his book, “A Negro Looks at the South”, in the section titled ‘Return of the Native” on page 353 that Barbus Patasa, a kind of fish that seems to be a combination of brim or perch with catfish. The “barbus” refers to the “whisker-like” protrusions, as are found on the catfish. Some of those sunfish can be found at the beautiful, non-smoking, popular fishing location named Camp Patasa in Sabine Parish, Louisiana.
Several year ago, a taxi driver mentioned that my name meant sweet. But I never knew that sunfish shared my name or that it was part of the creole language. My name is unique yet popular and I am every bit of its definition. I can truly say that I am a strong, intelligent, honest woman, filled with integrity, loyalty, and I am a conscientious big mouth sweetheart.
