Drew Meaning and Origin

The name Drew is a unisex name meaning “manliness” and is of English and Welsh origin. It is derived from the Welsh name “Dyfrig,” which means “wise” or “truthful.” In English, “Drew” is often considered a shortened form or nickname of the name “Andrew.” However, it has become increasingly popular as a standalone given name in its own right. Drew has been a popular name for both boys and girls in recent years. It gained more recognition as a masculine name in the 1970s and 1980s, but it has since gained popularity as a gender-neutral name. Although “Drew” is the most common spelling, alternative spellings like “Dru” or “Drue” can also be found. Several notable individuals bear the name Drew. Examples include Drew Barrymore (an American actress and producer), Drew Brees (an American football quarterback), and Drew Scott (a Canadian television personality and real estate expert).
