4.St Boniface (the first one)
5.St Augustine of Canterbury

I'd be willing to guess that St. Elizabeth of Portugal was Portugese  :P

Unless she was born of a wealthy family and married someone outside her home country.
Same goes for St. Brigid of Sweden. Brigid sounds more like an Irish name...

1.St Anthony of Padua is Portuguese, but I've met alot of people who thought he was Italian.
2.St Dominic is Spanish, and once again I've encountered several people who were sure he was Italian.
3.St John of God is Portuguese, but in my area, because the church named for him was Polish, alot of people assumed he was also Polish.
4.St Boniface is actually English, despite churches named for him generally being German.
5.St Augustine of Canterbury is Sicilian.
6.Sts Cyril and Methodius are Greek.
7.St Elizabeth of Portugal is from the Kingdom of Aragon (Spain)
8.St Brigid of Sweden was a trick question, she's Swedish.
9.St Willibrord is English, but in my area some people assumed he was Dutch because of the city's only Dutch parish being named in his honor.
10.St Wenceslaus is Bohemian (Czech)
