ANDREAS (Ἀνδρέας).  Original Greek form of Andrew (q.v.), derived from the vocabulary word andreia ("manliness"), or andreios ("manly, brave, courageous"), usually rendered "man, warrior."  Usage: Germany, Greece. (Prænomina, Charnock, 1882)

Andreas, the name of the Galilean fisherman, whom the Church Universal reveres as one of the foremost in the Glorious Company of the Apostles.  The saint was martyred at Patras in Achaia, whence some of his relics were carried in the fourth century to Scotland, and were thus the occasion of St. Andrew's becoming the Metropolitan see. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
