One of Jesus’s 12 Apostles in the Bible, Andrew is the namesake of at least half a dozen saints. With both holy and royal origins, including multiple kings, princes, dukes and US Presidents, Andrew’s reign and influence make this a dominant boys' name in the English-speaking world. Andrew also comes with two clear nicknames, Andy and Drew, and kids will be grateful for the choice as they grow up. British-American actor Andrew Garfield, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and comedian Andy Samberg are just three of the world’s many famous Andrews.
