    How would you update Andi?

    Not currently expecting by this is a discussion I’ve been having with some friends and family lately. We’ve always had a soft spot for the name Andi/Andie for a girl as a way to honor an Andrew in the family. That being said, I do wonder if it’s a bit dated.

    Am I just overthinking it? Is Andi/Andie still a viable, fresh choice? How do you honor Andrew without going right to Andrea (a name I’ve never felt a connection to). Are there any names that can be used to honor Andrew?

    Thank you for the help, suggestions, easing of fears!

    I don't think Andi is dated at all! There was a show on Disney Channel called Andi Mack, and the main character was a young girl named Andi. Never once did I feel like the name was out of place or dated, in fact I thought the total opposite! I've never met an Andi, or even heard of the name for a girl before. So I thought of it as fresh and even a little bit spunky! And it's a perfect honor name for Andrew, so I say go for it, keep it on your list, it's definitely a viable option!

    I don't think Andi is outdated... Maybe it's because I don't know any, so to me it's fresh and sweet. Alternative honor names for Andrew could be Andra or Drew. Additionally, Andrew means strong so maybe you could honor through a name with the same meaning of strength. Some examples of those are:

    Audrey
    Bridget
    Millicent -nn Millie
    Rita
    Valerie

    I mean there are others but those are a few. But Andi is cute!!

    I've always had a soft spot for Andie myself, and I've never really thought it to feel dated at all. If anything Andrea feels a bit that way though, so perhaps that's where that thought of (nickname) Andie being a bit dated comes from?

    There are already plenty of great ideas for nickname Andie, but really, I'm all for fullname Andie (and I do greatly prefer Andie, to Andi myself).

    Just a quick note to say,
    I'm always up for a chat, so feel free to say 'Hey'!
