My borther's name is André David. I love his name and since we speak French at home it is good and can easily be translated and pronounced in English.

I like this name. It seems like it should be the name of some hero in a Victorian noval, I'm not sure why. I think that's just me, though. It's very handsome. I would consider naming my son this.

I once knew an Andre, and his father was Greek, so I thought this name was Greek for awile. I think this is a nice name, but I can't hear it without thinking of that kid.

This name sounds so handsome and romantic, without going overboard. If you name your son Andre, you could always call him Andy to Americanize it. I like the name Andrew, but it is overused, so Andre is a fresh, old fashioned twist.

Andre, along with his friend Firmin, is one of the two managers in "The Phantom of the Opera", used in the musical (and to a lesser extent, in the book) as comic relief figures. He's a minor character, but I will always associate this name with him. :)

This name is also pretty common in Norway, and it is usually combined with another name with a hyphen (like Kim-André).

It really doesn't sound right for a child, a baby. Too old.

My best friend's name is Andre, and she's a girl, so I will always think of this name as feminine/masculine. According to my friend, her parents didn't know what she was going to be so they picked Andre and if she turned out a boy they'd tell him it was short for Andre and she were a girl they'd tell her it was short for Andrea. As it is people constantly call her Andrea and and when they see her name on paper they think she's a boy.

André was a very popular name in France for a long time, but is now considered quite old fashioned and is not commonly given to baby boys anymore. It ranked #612 in 2010. Despite this, it is apparently the 4th most common boy's name in France.
