According to what people say. The place was named unwillingly. Before the independence of Pakistan. A foreigner came to visit the place, he didn't know its name, so he asked an old lady to tell the place's name. The old lady didn't know English, and was carrying flour in a pot on her head. She thought that the man was asking about what she was carrying. So she replied him in north Punjabi or Panjistani "Puttar, Atta" in English it means "Son, (it's) flour". From this the place was named as Pathriata and is similar to the Panjistani (or North Punjabi) words Puttar Atta. ( Source: )
