  • "It's my name. I just pronounce it by syllables (an-dre-yah) but there are times thag there would be an accent (on-drey-ah) it's a cool name though there would be a lot of Andreas around." May. 28, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "ann-DREE-uh for me. I love my name. And it's an easy icebreaker -- people are always asking me is it anndreeuh or ondrayuh? I respect the other pronunciation, but I love mine" Jul. 21, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my first and only daughter Andrea 2 weeks after she was born (January 1st,1972) because I loved the name, time was flying, I had never known anyone named that, and her Dad and I were fighting over what her name should be (I hated his choices too!) and I took the initiative and sent off the birth cert. w/o consulting him at all." Nov. 18, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name Andrea. I love my name. My mother wanted it pronounced On-dree-ah. Anyway you say it I will answer. It's not very common in my area and I stopped trying to teach people how to say it, too time consuming. I usually go by Andi, which is yet again the way my mom wanted it spelled. Wouldn't change my name in a million years. Because no matter how you say it it's always beautiful!" Jan. 30, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my name but I have an accent mark in it so its Andre'a (On-Dre-yah). But still all thru grammer school college and even at work I get called An-dree-ya. Does my accent mark mean nothing?

  • "I named my first daughter Andrea. The name An-dree-uh was not at all common 25 years ago and she still enjoys being the only Andrea in a room full of Ashleys which was much more popular in the mid- 80's.

  • "Andrea is not MY name, but it is my youngest niece's (now 18). Her parents, both Americans from 2 very different cultural origins, (her mother, my sister, is Ukrainian, and her father, my brother-in-law, is Egyptian) pronounce it "ANN-dree-ah", with the accent on "ANN". I have always pronounced it "on-DRAY-yah", with the accent on "DRAY". Her grandmother on her mother's side (my mom), is NATIVE UKRAINIAN with English being her 3rd or 4th language (Ukrainian is her 1st), and when she pronounces the name, she "Ukrainianizes" it and says any of the following, ALL with a rolled "R": "on-DRAY-yah", "on-DRAY-kah" or "on-DRAY-youchkah", the latter two being a diminutive of the name and frequently used by Ukrainian-speaking people as a term of endearment, especially with youngsters, not just specifically for the name Andrea, but most other names as well, including male names. The above just goes to show that there are indeed more than one pronunciation, frequently several, for not just Andrea, but for other names, too, for various reasons. It is for this reason that I decided to ask my niece, when she got a bit older, what she calls HERSELF, as I realized that that's the only one who mattered here, as it was HER name and how she chooses to pronounce it and wants or expects others to pronounce it, was HER prerogative alone. So I asked her at 2 different stages of her life, once when she was 5 and the 2nd and last time when she was 14, both times explaining how different people called her by different names (or pronounced it differently) and that I wanted to know how she referred to herself when she told people her name. And both times I got the same answer: My name is "ANN-dree-yah", but I prefer to be called "ANJ". Just like YOU, Aunt Nadia, when you prefer to be called "NAJ". So there you have it. My Andrea, is just plain, but good ol' Anj, and I'm just plain, & good ol' Aunt "NAJ". And I wouldn't have it any other way..." Mar. 6, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I?m Andrea (pronounced Ahn-dreh-ah with a rolled R). I don?t roll the R. My parents have accents, so i don?t know if they are saying Ahn or Ann. My sister & cousins (who have no accent) say the Ahn sound, so I assume it?s Ahn. They say Ahn-dray-ah. I say Ann-dray-ah though when I meet people through family. Back in my school days, no one called me by my name. I was Ann-dree-ah by all from nursery school through high school. I spoke up, so I?m not sure why everyone got it wrong. Even my best friends said Ann-dree-ah & they were at my house often hearing my family say my name, but they never said it like my family says it. As I got older, I realized that Ahn-dree-ah is the closest pronounciation to my name & by the time my husband met me I was Ahn-dree-ah. I?ve been introducing myself as Ahn-dree-ah for 24 years now. I do also go by Ahn-dray-ah/Ann-dray-ah a lot, like at work for example, but mostly only by family. I currently work with 500 people & at this company I hear 4 pronounciations all day long, including the one I was born with. I introduce myself at work as Ahn-dree-ah. My husband & friends call me Ahn-dree-ah. My nicknames are Ange & Annie." Feb. 17, 2019: Report as inappropriate

It is so uncommom but it is a way to spell Andrea and every site I search on said the only time more than 10 in a year have been named Andreah was 22 in 2003 which is when I was born. You can pronounce it any way you want people who i first meat can never say it right and someone onced called me Andrew. But its a beautiful name and I wouldn't change it."

  • "My name is Andrea, prnounced as you would the feminine Andrew (my father's name). I really like the name, but the thing about it is there are many ways to pronounce it, and every Andrea seems to prefer the way which she is least often called. I'm always hearing "on-dray-uh" and cringing, whereas many girls/women whom prefer it that way cringe to being summoned by my prefferred pronunciation. Overall, though, I enjoy my name, and don't meet too many others with it." Mar. 19, 2006: Report as inappropriate
