Andrew

Andrew m
English form of the Greek name Andreas, short form of any of various compound names with the first element andr- man or, in particular, warrior. In the New Testament, this is the name of the first disciple to be called by Jesus. After the Resurrection, St Andrew preached in Asia Minor and Greece, and was probably crucified at Patras in Achaia. He was one of the most popular saints of the Middle Ages and was adopted as the patron of Scotland, Russia, and Greece. The name has long been popular in Scotland (in the Lowlands traditionally in the form Andra); its popularity in England has been enhanced by its use as a British royal name for Prince Andrew (b. 1960), the Duke of York.
