Pg with no4, No idea if it's a boy or a girl so at the moment we are just throwing idea's around.
What do you think of Drew as a name? If you hear it in the park do you think nice name, bogan name etc?
If I have a boy (after 3 girls) I would love to name him after my dad who is Andrew but I don't like Andrew and I have always liked Drew.
Would love to hear ideas.

I had an ex named Drew (just Drew, not short for Andrew). He was a lovely guy. I think it's a great name.

Go for it , I see absolutely no reason why not. I like that you don't hear it much. I've only ever met one.

I like Drew despite traumatic memories of an ex, so that means I must like it a lot.
I don't have much opinion of Drew vs. Andrew except to note I would always call an Andrew Drew and never Andy.
Drew is used as a standalone name, independently of Andrew, in Wales, and is related to the word "druid."
My favourite form of Andrew is Andre but I grew up knowing tons of guys named Andre, most answering to Dre, but that is probably not as workable/unremarkable/kinda cool-ish out here.

My other girls have quite girly names so if i have another girl I don't think I would use Drew, plus I see it as quite a manly name

It's a bit dull.
On a side note, I once knew a Anne Drew.

It;s fine, as long as your last name isn't peacock.
Though I would go Andrew for a boy, and nickname Drew.

Uncommon but very nice. I work with a guy called Drew and he's lovely.
I think it works equally nicely as a standalone name as it does as a nickname for Andrew.

My name would have been Drew if I'd been a boy! I always thought it was a great choice, so I say go for it.

I've always liked Drew and surprised you don't hear it more often.

My husbands name is Drew and I love it!
But hate Andrew lol

I'm not keen on the name. It's not awful, just a little insipid.

Love it! Like leosmum, I would have been Drew had I been a boy -- and my husband & I had it on our short list.

I think it's nice and it's nice to name the baby after your dad

I really love the name Drew. I wanted to use it, but our surname is Sketcher....so I'm thinking the combination might not work well. Lol.
