Name Meaning

1 English: from a short form of Andrew .2 English (Norman): from the Germanic personal name Drogo, which is of uncertain origin; it is possibly akin to Old Saxon (gi)drog ‘ghost’, ‘phantom’, or with a stem meaning ‘to bear’, ‘to carry’ (Old High German tragan). Whatever its origin, the name was borne by one of the sons of Charlemagne, and was subsequently popular throughout France in the forms Dreus, Drues (oblique case Dreu, Dr(i)u), whence it was introduced to England by the Normans. Drogo de Monte Acuto (as his name appears in its Latinized form) was a companion of William the Conqueror and founder of the Montagu family, among whom the personal name Drogo was revived in the 19th century.3 English (of Norman origin): nickname from Middle English dreue, dru, Old French dru, ‘favorite’, ‘lover’ (originally an adjective, apparently from a Gaulish word meaning ‘strong’, ‘vigorous’, ‘lively’, but influenced by the sense of the Old High German element trūt, drūt ‘dear’, ‘beloved’).
