André is such an exquisite and fragile name, it has a taint of a French-type of novel archetype whilst still having such a dark aura when pronounced, it sounds classy and so extravagant yet simple and mild, vis-a-vis the usage of the name, I would still not consider to name my child this way since my friend is named this and has already ruined the name for me, but I truly invite others to create a relationship with this name by naming their heritage with it.

Andre, what a great name. It must include the accent over the E... that puts the image of one on paper. Sophisticated, yet also casual, it has always been a classic and there is no such thing as an "old" name when your name is timeless. I typically think of men of French decent when I hear it.

Andre is the name of that hottie you always fancied, I imagine an Andre to be tall dark with green eyes, a beautiful smile. I imagine a handsome man called Andre would always smell of Tom Ford perfume, wear Reiss clothing and probably come from somewhere like Spain or Portugal, it also sounds like someone who would be really attractive and a total cutie.

My best friend's name is Andre, and she's a girl, so I will always think of this name as feminine/masculine. According to my friend, her parents didn't know what she was going to be so they picked Andre and if she turned out a boy they'd tell him it was short for Andre and she were a girl they'd tell her it was short for Andrea. As it is people constantly call her Andrea and and when they see her name on paper they think she's a boy.
