  • "We named our son Drew because it was easy to spell and when he learned cursive it would be easy to write. Of course, now they don't teach cursive...but it did make life easy when he was learning. Plus, I had a teacher in high school who said name your kids what you want them called. Don't name him Charles and call him Charlie. Name the kid Charlie." Apr. 20, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "Drew is a great boy name. Hard to make up rude nicknames, everyone can pronounce and from its Greek derivative means "manly"." Mar. 16, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My dad was going to call me Andrew, but instead called me Drew. I prefer Drew over Andrew, so I am glad to be called Drew." Dec. 30, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our little boy Drew. It is the perfect name for him and it isn't very common. There are lots of Aidens and Caydens in his daycare, but no one named Drew. Also, it's just Drew, not Andrew. To me, Drew can stand on its own and doesn't have to only be a nickname for Andrew anymore. It is manly and cool, but not so uncommon that it is weird." Jul. 15, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like the name Drew. It's not too common of a name. I only see a few other people named Drew." Jul. 27, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in 1963, It is my mother's maiden name, not short for Andrew. No one, and I mean No one, had this name when I was growing up! I am amazed at all the little boys and girls with the name Drew, its really taken off as a popular name." Jan. 21, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in 1975. For many years there were very vew people that had my name. Usually if I heard someone calling "Drew" they were looking for me. Now it is too popular and kinda ruined." Jan. 9, 2006: Report as inappropriate
