I think it came from the American Revolution. The "Patriots" were people from England who were in what is now the U.S.(some were in New England), and beleived that they no longer were citizens of England. They fought against the British in the Revolutionay War and won.

In 1961, locals submitted names they liked for the new Boston football team in the AFL and the Boston Patriots was the most popular.
