I like Andreas smile

Went to school with a really nice boy named Andreas and never met a nasty one...

Anders, cool name.

As soon as I read Anders my mind thought of Anders Breivik who committed the 2011 Norwegian terrorist attacks killing 77 people. I'm not saying you shouldn't just sharing where my mind went, I can't think of anyone else I know of even remotely with that name. Xx

Definitely Andreas, it's lovely.

Andreas may be mistaken as Andrea (and as a girl)

Lemondrop09 Mon 17-Apr-17 22:06:48

Andreas. It's a lovely name

I'm afraid my first thought was Anders Brevik too

DramaAlpaca Mon 17-Apr-17 22:13:44

I prefer Andreas, but Anders is nice too.

How about Andrew, the English version?

Do you have Scandinavian or German connections?

If not, I wouldn't, especially if you are in the UK as you'll have a lifetime of him having to spell it (both are easy enough to spell, but people seem to automatically go into a flap with a furrin name) and him being teased and called Andrea.

Definitely Andreas - fab name.

I like both...for me it would depend on the surname - to me Anders goes with a short one syllable name....Andreas goes with more a more flowy name.
