This name is beautiful and so rare and unique, I think I might just name my daughter this if I ever have one.

Sounds more like a fictional name. Not many would be able to take a name like "Andromeda" much seriously.

One of my daughters is called Andromeda, I’m very much into astronomy and my favourite thing to view in the sky is that galaxy, so I named her after that. She just loves her name and is very proud of it (3 ½ currently) and corrects anyone who gets it even slightly wrong and then tells them what she’s named after, a little smarty pants. We had a very poor reaction at first from our parents who had all sorts of objections about it but now they would not have her by any other name and to be honest, her personality suits it well. However anyone who dares to try and shorten it may well receive a painful whack from her dolly! Our other daughter is called Poppy and that was the wife's choice.

I plan to name my daughter Andromeda- and nickname her Rome / Romie out of the middle sound. Even if it makes people think of Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion :P.

I adore it. It's beautiful, mature, and uncommon yet not unheard of. Plus, it comes with a variety of cute nicknames, from Andy to Ida.

We are naming our daughter Andromeda Elizabeth, I just hope she likes it when she's older :). We absolutely adore anything to do with astronomy, mythology, and things of the mystic world. We both hope to one day study the stars as a career. Plus her father is very adamant on calling her Andromeda. It was decided that was to be our little girl's name even before she was conceived. I think it's gorgeous.

Ada is a cute nickname that makes Andromeda more accessible.
Ada Lovelace was a pioneer of computer science, while Andromeda, of course, is a galaxy & constellation. Perfect names to spark a young girls interest in science. Still, both are fun, classic, and girly; the constellation is named for a mythical princess!

This is such a gorgeous name. It fits perfectly with a middle name of "Raine".

In the definition it states that Andromeda was a Greek princess... this is incorrect. The story is Greek, but Andromeda was an Ethiopian princess. [noted -ed]

If I ever have a daughter, I'm definitely naming her this.

I love the name Andromeda, and the nickname Meda sounds so sweet!

www.pronouncenames.com says it is pronounced An-droh-meda. I think I like this pronunciation better.

This sounds like such a ridiculous name. It's super long for one thing, and none of the sounds in it are at all flattering or pretty. Plus it's the name of a galaxy.

"The Andromeda Strain" is a sci-fi novel published in 1969 that got a movie adaptation in 1971.

I've also seen this name interpreted as latinisation of the Ancient Greek Andromede meaning "ruler of men", or meaning "mindful of her husband" or meaning "advising like a man". I don't which, if any, is accurate. Also, the French form is Andromède, the Catalan is Andròmeda and the Spanish is Andrómeda.

My first name is Andromeda, I would like to know how many others there are, I have never met another, but I would love to. I am 3rd generation Greek and very proud of it. I have done research and I'm very very proud of my unique name and origin.

This name is absolutely stunning. Andromeda... I think of a beautiful, strong, and mysterious woman. However, I don't think I could ever name my child this. It's too unheard of... maybe as a middle name. Or maybe even as a first name if I think it over. :)

It's a really beautiful name. I myself wouldn't use it, but I still find it stunning. It would make a great name for an alien princess in a sci-fi story.

Andromeda also means "she who has bravery in her mind," which I personally prefer.

My big sister's called Andromeda! We always used to call her Andie but then some People found out that my name was Pandora and I go by Pandy for short. "Here comes Andy-Pandy and Looby-Lou, happy as they can be Teddy too..." Not nice ¬_¬ I wasn't too bothered but we always called her Meda after that. We pronounce it 'Andro-meda' like 'drove' but with out the 'v' sound.

Very important sounding name! I like it. I can't really picture calling a sweet little girl Andromeda, though.

Very strange and unusual, not unlikeable though. :)

I can't help but feel this name is a bit stupid. Maybe it's because of the brainless science fiction series of the same name.

Andromeda is one of the most beautiful names I have ever heard.

This would be a really cool name to use, but I'm afraid it's a bit too strange and ''big'', if you get my drift. It could work as a somewhat unconventional middle name, though, and it can always be shortened to Andie.

Andromeda is my second middle name, I love it. The Greek myth with Perseus and Andromeda is one of my favourite. I go by "Andie" as a nickname rather than my first name as I love my middle name so much.

I love the Andromeda! I know a married couple whose names are Andrea and Andrew, and I totally think they should name their daughter (if they ever have one) Andromeda. Keeping with the Andr theme! Andromeda is awesome!

Both Andrea and Andrew come from the Greek word "Andro" meaning "man."

This name is AWESOME. There's a ton of ways you can pronounce it, and each way is beautiful. Plus, the nickname can be Andy. Don't see a lot of girls with the nickname Andy, do ya now? :D

I think that there's some sci-fi TV show called Andromeda. I believe that it's something like Star Trek. That's what I think of everytime I hear the word Andromeda.

I think this name is very beautiful, and definitely not overused.

There is a galaxy named after Andromeda, very close to our own, and a subject of extensive observation by astronomers due to its having similar properties to the Milky Way. This galaxy can also be easily seen with the naked eye.

The above stated galaxy can actually be seen in the contellation Orion.
