I believe most European countries pronounce Andrea "ahn-dray-uh". The other pronunciations are the American versions. So, in the States, neither way is considered incorrect.

As for the meaning, it basically means "manly". I take that to mean "strong", and "tough". =)

This is my name and I love it. My mom named my brother Andre and me Andrea (pronounced On-dree-uh). Ann-dree-uh sounds nasal to me so I’m happy for the way she says it. Most people don’t take the time to learn to correctly pronounce my name, or others’ for that matter, and I think we should honor the correct pronunciation of each other’s names. I get On-dray-uh and Angela a lot. I found it interesting that the day name in Slovakia is Andrea for 1/5; my birthday is 1/6. So I think it’s meant to be. I use “Andi” only when I’m on social media plus my high school gym teacher started that nickname.
