Drew : Meaning, Origin and Popularity

Meaning of name Drew:

Drew is a shortened form of Andrew, which is the anglicized form of the Greek name “Andreas”, derived from 'André' which translates to “man” or “warrior”. In the Bible, Saint Andrew was a fisherman from Galilee and the brother of Saint Peter. He was also a disciple of John the Baptist and one of the first to recognize Jesus as the Messiah. Saint Andrew became one of the most popular saints in the Middle Ages and was chosen to be the patron saint of Russia, Greece, and Scotland. Andrew has long been a very popular boys name in the English-speaking world; However, both Andrew and Drew have been perennial favorites in Scotland ever since Saint Andrew was adopted as their patron saint. It was also believed that an angel instructed a monk to take relics of Saint Andrew to "the ends of the earth" - and he was ordered to stop at modern day St. Andrews, Scotland (home of the famous golf course). Another legend suggests that Saint Andrew appeared to a Pictish king urging him to join forces with the Scots in order to defeat the English (which advice proved fruitful).

Popularity

The name Drew has been in use in America since the US government began tracking naming trends in 1880, although it was never a huge favorite. It would not stick to the boards consistently until the 1940s. The name grew in popularity as the decades progressed and by the mid-1980s, Drew reached the peak of its popularity. The name didn't quite make the Top 100 Most Used Boy's Names list, but it didn't come close. Today, the masculine name of Drew continues to hang in moderately high levels of usage. For girls, Drew briefly appeared on the naming charts between 1994 and 2005, then dropped. Clearly, Drew's appearance on the women's charts was influenced by Drew Barrymore, one of America's spoiled favorites since the movie ET Many American parents like strong, masculine, or androgynous names for their girls, so it's no surprise Drew was in use for a while. In any case, today, Drew is almost exclusively a male name. It's a quick name, with a syllable 'manliness' and confidence.
