Characteristics of Deandre
Etymology & Historical Origin - Deandre
Deandre is a modern American masculine personal name, used mainly by African-Americans and apparently developed by putting together the popular “De-“prefix with the name Andre. Similar to the names Deangelo, Demarcus and Deshawn, the “De-“ trend started in the 1970s and is primarily common in the United States Black population. André is the French and Portuguese form of the Greek Andreas, which ultimately gave the English Andrew. The Greek Andreas stems from ‘andr’ which translates into “warrior, brave man”. It was also a common name among the Jews two centuries before Christ. Andrew is the name of the first disciple called by Jesus in the New Testament. A Galilean fisherman and the brother of St. Peter, St. Andrew was also a disciple of John the Baptist and one of the first to recognize Jesus as the Messiah. He became one of the most popular saints in the Middle Ages and was chosen to be the patron saint of Russia, Greece and Scotland. It has long been a widely popular boys’ name in the English-speaking world, but particularly in Scotland. The African-American version of Deandre (often rendered DeAndre) puts a modern spin on an old favorite. Since the word “de” basically means “of” in Latin, then it stands to reason that Deandre simply means “of Andrew”.
Popularity of the Name Deandre
The name Deandre first appeared on the U.S. male naming charts in 1971, right around the time Blacks were beginning to exert their own individuality through their own unique naming practices. The prefixing of “De” became particularly popular and Deandre was one of the names to ride this fast-moving trend. The name shot up in popularity for the first 25 years of its existence and reached its peak usage in 1995 at a respectable position of #250 on the charts. The name has seen a lot of success in the states of Maryland, Alabama and South Carolina where there are high concentrations of Blacks. Because this name is most popular among African-Americans, it has a lot of ethnic appeal. It’s a thoughtful choice for a baby boy whose father’s name is Andre or Andrew – making him the son of a ‘brave man’. Whether it’s spelled D’Andre, DeAndre or Deandre, the name seems to give old Andre a masculine edge.
