Comments for ANDREI:

The Name Days page for 'Andrei' has 'Bulgarian: November 30'. I'd like to point out that this is also the date when he is celebrated in Romania. (Indeed, 'celebrated': he is one of the most important saints in Romania because he Christianized the Dacians in Scythia Minor, on the shores of the Black Sea, thus laying the foundations of what would become the Romanian Orthodox Church).

I really like this name, it sounds nice and it's not so common as Andrew.

I'm very fond of this name, personally. I recently read War and Peace for the first time, and Prince Andrei was my favorite character. It feels like a very sturdy name to me. Not too feminine, but also not too overwhelmingly "Grr, I'm a man". I would consider it for my own son, but probably as a middle name.
