Comments for ANDROMACHE:

Pronounced and-DROM-uh-KEE. You want to blend together the first half of the name, while also stretching it out; the same is done with the 'KEE'.

While I think Andromeda is cool, this name sounds ugly to me. I don't like what comes after Andro, basically.

Given the name's sound (and its meaning, as I later felt), I'd say it suits a boy better. Just swap the ending "-e" for "-os" and it can go perfectly on a son.

The French form of the name is Andromaque and it's well known in France, because of a famous tragedy written by Jean Racine in the 17th century.

My hubby's family (all Greeks) pronounce this name andro-MAK-HE!

Andromache was played by Saffron Burrows in the 2004 film "Troy".

I've always pronounced this "an-DROM-ah-kee", like Andromeda with an "akee" instead of the "eda". I think it's an absolutely gorgeous name. I'd love to use it some day!

"Battle of a man" really makes no sense to me. "Fighting man", perhaps, but not as a female name. "Fights like a man"? Also unlikely. And the character in the Iliad is the model of a soldier's wife - loyal, supportive, warm and loving; not a bit aggressive. Perhaps it could be something like "Belongs to a man of conflict", which makes us shudder but would have been A-OK in antiquity.
