"If I had to be honest, someone who I have taken quite a liking to is named this. It?s a rather funny, basic name, but I don?t hate it at all.
People tend to tease him for his name (nothing major), based off the toy story movie. It?s cute, with all honesty.
Don?t be a boring Andrew!
Kidding :)" May. 16, 2019:
