ANDROMEDA
GENDER: Feminine
OTHER SCRIPTS: Ανδρομεδη (Ancient Greek)
PRONOUNCED: an-DRAW-mə-də (English)   [key]
Meaning & History
Means "to think of a man" from the Greek element ανδρος (andros) "of a man" combined with μηδομαι (medomai) "to think, to be mindful of". Andromeda is a constellation in the northern sky, which gets its name from a mythical Greek princess who was rescued from sacrifice by Perseus. This is also the name of a nearby galaxy, given because it resides (from our point of view) within the constellation.
