Growing up in Sweden I knew one Italian boy named Andrea. It wasn't easy for him since Swedes only know it as a female name.

The great Italian pop ballad singer and opera singer, who has been called "The 4th Tenor" - this is of course Andrea Bocelli.

In Italy Andrea is an ancient name, but it has been really overused in last 50 years. It was the 9th most popular name in Rome in 1966, the most popular in 1971, the 3rd behind Alessandro and Marco in 1976, the 4th behind Daniele, Alessandro and Marco in 1981, again the most popular in 1986, 1991 and 1994; it still ranks 3rd of the most popular names in Italy in 2004 and in 2006, always behind Francesco and Alessandro. Many Italians can hardly believe it is a feminine name in other countries.

Sweetie, this is not the same name as the American "Andrea," which is the feminine form of Andrew and pronounced "ANNE-dree-uh." This a completely different, ITALIAN name, pronounced "Awn-DRAY-uh," and it is quite OBVIOUSLY a male's name.

He was the younger brother of 'metaphysical' painter Giorgio De Chirico.

Female name...No matter which way you pronounce "Andrea" it's for a girl.
Want a male version, go with Andreas. Any male named "Andrea" would get the shit kicked out of him in any English speaking country. It's just asking for trouble.

Ann-dray-uh (know a girl who pronounces her name this way)
Awn-dray-uh (know a woman who pronounces her name this way)

Feminine. Feminine. Feminine.

All you ignorant, non-football fans of the world haven't even heard of Andrea Pirlo, the Italian legend? Wow. Just WOW.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Andrea Ferro, the male singer from Lacuna Coil. They're an Italian metal/rock band with two lead singers, the other being Cristina Scabbia.

People saying it sounds feminine should remember: 1) it originally was masculine, but because it ends in 'a' people believed it to be feminine. The same goes with Nicola; 2) the name starts with "andr" like many things that have to do with men (ex. Misandry) and there is a reason.

Andreas is a much better name.

It is hilarious to hear how people are convinced it is a feminine name. Andrea comes from the Greek work anér-andròs, which literally means 'MAN'. Not even man as human, but man as male, masculine, man. It's a men's name if there ever was one! I suppose it sounds feminine in germanic languages (english included) but it is actually where the name Andrew comes from.
