    Strictly a boy’s name?

    If you’ve seen my other posts, I’ve been trying to find a way to honor Andrew nn Andy. The problem is that I would not want to name my son Andrew, it doesn’t fit. I could use Andy or Andie for a daughter, or Andrew as a middle name for a son. But is it too weird to use Andrew as a fn for a daughter? I know many of you are not keen on BNOG but I am open to any ideas to honor him. I however will not be using Andrea or Andromeda! Give me your thoughts please!

    Thank you in advance 😊

    I think it is too weird to use Andrew as a first name for a daughter. Andie is completely fine as a stand alone name.

    Andrew means 'strong and manly', you could honour more loosely with meaning by using:
    Audrey/Audra - noble strength
    Valerie - strength, healthy
    Adira - strong
    Bridget - strength
    Keren - strength, ram's horn

    Yes, I'd find this a bit weird. I can't really see it as a unisex name, which is odd I guess since it's made up of Andy and Drew, two unisex names? I don't know, maybe it's because it means manly and just sounds like it does?

    I think Andie would work fine on its own

    Some other ideas:
    Drew
    Andra
    Leandra 'Andie'
    Adeline 'Andie' (maybe a stretch, but it might work)
    Andrina
    Amanda 'Andie'
    Alexandrina 'Andie'
    Wren (Andrew) - maybe a double name like Ada-Wren

    More names!

    The first baby doll I ever received as a child wore a blue dress and flowered bonnet, and when my parents asked me what I would name my doll I smiled big and said, “Andrew!” Haha.

    With Andie and Drew being accepted girls’ names I don’t see a problem with Andrew. It does mean “strong and manly” but so does Andrea. On paper, people would definitely assume it refers to a male, so that might be a burden (or an advantage, depending on the situation!).
