History and Origin
Andy is predominantly a diminutive version of the male given name Andrew, and variants of it such as Andreas and Andrei. The form of the variation is based on the Scottish "-ie" diminutive ending. Andrew is derived from the Greek name Andreas, meaning "man". Andy is also occasionally used as a diminutive for the female given name Andrea in the English, German, Scandinavian and Spanish feminine version of the name Andrew (although Andrea is a masculine name in Italian). It is also occasionally spelled "Andie", "Andi", "Andii", or "Andee" (these more often as a feminine name, but not exclusively). Andy (in and of itself, not as a nickname) is the 217th most popular name in the US, with less than 0.001% of the people with this spelling of the name being female. The Indian name Anindya (meaning "one who cannot be criticised") is also sometimes shortened to Andy.
