Andrew is Michael J. Fox's real middle name. The "J" doesn't really stand for anything. He took the J when he went into the movies after Michael J. Pollard because there was another Michael Fox registered and he dreaded being called "Michael, A Fox!"

Saint Andrew (Sf. Andrei in Romanian) is at least also the patron saint of Romania - as the first comment in this forum says. I think it would be nice to add this info in the description. Otherwise I'll think all the other name explanations on this website are not accurate which is maybe not true. You can check for your reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Andrew
