Origins Available: French, Scottish


The majestic country of France is the ancestral homeland of the distinguished surname Androwe. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Franks, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The name Androwe is derived from the given name André. The personal name André is derived from the Latin name Andreas, which in turn is derived from the Greek name Andros, which meant manly.

Androwe Early Origins
