My name is Andrea. I had no idea it was so common until I was recommended this site by my mother. My full name is Alexandrea which is funny because my husband is Alexander (Alex) and It's like a clash, our names. Sometimes i go by Drea, but I usually go by just Andrea. My daughter Marleena appreciates my (and her own) name. She loves long names like us!

this name isnt so bad around small towns. i grew up in the same small town surrounded by small towns and i never had an issue with anyone pronouncing it wrong. I did however have alot of problems with kids picking on me in elementary school because its the feminine version of andrew and so of course you hear that alot. i cant give you any information on how it would effect someone in a city but i have never had any issues. i think it is a strong beautiful name for any little girl.

I have had this name my whole life (obviously) and I have never had is pronounced correctly the first time. I have had to go by Andie since Jr high just so I will know when people are talking to me.

im writing a novel and i choose to name the main character andrea. i think it is a stunning name, that is elegant yet fun and light.

11/27/2021 11:31:30 PM

I'm Andrea (pronounced Ahn-dreh-ah with a rolled R). I don't roll the R. My parents have accents, so i don't know if they are saying Ahn or Ann. My sister & cousins (who have no accent) say the Ahn sound, so I assume It's Ahn. They say Ahn-dray-ah. I say Ann-dray-ah though when I'meet people through family. Back in my school days, no one called me by my name. I was Ann-dree-ah by all from nursery school through high school. I spoke up, so I'm not sure why everyone got it wrong. Even my best friends said Ann-dree-ah & they were at my house often hearing my family say my name, but they never'said it like my family says it. As I got older, I realized that Ahn-dree-ah is the closest pronounciation to my name & by the time my husband met me I was Ahn-dree-ah. i've been introducing myself as Ahn-dree-ah for 24 years now. I do also go by Ahn-dray-ah/Ann-dray-ah a lot, like at work for example, but mostly only by family. I currently work with 500 people & at this company I hear 4 pronounciations all day long, including the one I was born with. I introduce myself at work as Ahn-dree-ah. My husband & friends call me Ahn-dree-ah. My nicknames are Ange & Annie.

My name is Andrea and I'm 56 so when my mother named me wasn't a very popular name but I love my name It's beautiful. I pronounce it Ann-dre-a not Unn-drea. I had a nickname when I was little, it was d r e a I would be rather called my full name I think It's beautiful.

9/5/2021 6:59:42 PM

My name is pronounced On-dree-ah. Not too many people call me that, and its so funny when I introduce myself and say "Hi, my name is On-dree-ah" and they reply with "Oh, nice to meet you An-dre-uh." Frustrating. But I love my name! (Oh, and my middle name is Lousie too!)
