    Name Meaning

    Of disputed origin. It has been in use since the 17th century. It is now generally taken as a feminine equivalent of Andreas , and this probably represents its actual origin. However, it was not in use in the Middle Ages, and the suggestion has also been made that it represents a coinage in English from the Greek vocabulary word andreia ‘manliness, virility’.
