Are there any good alternatives to Andrew?
My husband's name is Andrew and it is a tradition in his family to name the first son after the father. I personally love the idea of having a little Andrew. His parents are also thrilled about the whole idea however Andrew Hates it. He says that there are way too many Andrews in the world and to add another one to the family would just confuse him and his son too, especially when I call one of them. So I'm looking for any alternatives even a good name with the letter A sounds good for example my name is Natalie and my daughter's name is Nadia. So please anybody help?
ok here is my idea name him andrew pick a good middle name and call him by his middle name!
Well, with an A it becomes a little more tricky. Had you not suggested that, I instantly thought Drew.Otherwise, Anthony, Anderson, Andre, Ansley, or Antoine!
