Etymology 1Edit

Latinate feminine form of Andreas and Andrew.

Proper nounEdit

Andrea

  1. A female given name.
    • 2003, Jack Weyland, Everyone Gets Married in the End, Cedar Fort, →ISBN, page 157:
      There's not much you can do with a name like Andrea. "Call me And." I don't think so. "Call me Andy." You say that and people will start calling you Handy Andy, and before you know it, you'll be getting phones calls from people wanting you to come and get their drain unstopped. So I've been forced to have people call me Andrea, which sounds like a girl who takes ballet and is learning to play the cello.
Usage notesEdit
  • Recorded since the Middle Ages, but first popular in the latter half of the 20th century.
