Andrew or Samuel?

My husband and I are discussing the names [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] ([name_u]Sam[/name_u]) and [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] ([name_u]Andy[/name_u] and/or [name_u]Drew[/name_u]). Which name should we go with?

I prefer [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] nn [name_u]Sam[/name_u]. But if you go with [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] i prefer the nn [name_u]Drew[/name_u]

[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] would be my preference as well c:

I love both of these names so much! Personally I prefer [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] (and I love [name_u]Andy[/name_u] as a nickname) but [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] is also darling. Have you considered using both? [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] Lastname or [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] Lastname?

Snap! Same here.

I would generally say to go for [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] because [name_u]Sam[/name_u] is so great - but I actually prefer the name [name_m]Andrew[/name_m]. I’ve never liked the Mule but of [name_m]Samuel[/name_m].

[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] gets my vote! [name_u]Love[/name_u] the nn [name_u]Sam[/name_u]

I like [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] with the nn [name_u]Sam[/name_u] a lot more. [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] is a bit of a “dad’s name” for me and also reminds me of [name_m]Prince[/name_m] [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] who I’m not the biggest fan of.

I prefer [name_u]Drew[/name_u] to [name_u]Sam[/name_u]. But I prefer [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] to [name_m]Andrew[/name_m]. Can I suggest [name_u]Sal[/name_u] as a nn?

I prefer [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] nn [name_u]Sam[/name_u]/[name_u]Sami[/name_u] :slight_smile:

Both are fine but I prefer [name_m]Andrew[/name_m].

I prefer [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] nn [name_u]Sam[/name_u]. Such a sweet name!

I prefer [name_m]Andrew[/name_m]. FWIW, I love it as is - doesn’t need a nn. If you do want a nn, then definitely [name_u]Drew[/name_u].
