Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows the gaeilge equivalent of Andrew and Adrian.
Slán.

Sionna,

The Irish for Andrew is Aindréas. I don't know about Adrian - sorry.

Slán

No, dammit.
People are looking for an Irish name with the same or similar meaning, not a transliteration.

Aindréas is the usual way of using the Hebrew name whose English form is Andrew.

Adrian is a Latin name, I'll need to check my sources for an Irish equivalent.
