Gender: F Meaning of Drew: "strong and manly" Origin of Drew: Diminutive of Andrew

Drew is an elegant formerly male-only alternative to Andy that joined the stylishly upscale Paige-Brooke-Blair sorority, thanks largely to Drew Barrymore. Barrymore comes by her first name legitimately: it was the maiden name of her paternal great-grandmother, Georgiana 'Georgie' Drew Barrymore, one of many esteemed actors in her family history.

Jessica Simpson used Drew as the middle name of her daughter Maxwell.
