Dries Meaning and Origin

Dries is a boy’s name of Dutch origin, meaning: “manly.” Dries is a name that is typically used as a shortened form of the Dutch name “Andries,” which is a variant of the name “Andrew.” The name Andrew comes from the Greek name Andreas, which means “manly” or “warrior.” Andrew is an important figure in Christianity, as he was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. In terms of popularity, “Dries” is not as commonly used as “Andrew” or “Andries,” but it is still a recognizable name in certain parts of the world, particularly in the Netherlands and Flanders (the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium). It’s worth noting that “Dries” can also be a surname, particularly in the same regions where it is used as a first name. Notable people with the surname Dries include the Belgian footballer Dries Mertens and the Dutch speed skater Dries van Wijhe.
