"It's" pronounced "Andrayah"!

... if you're the former-presiding officer of the university 'PCU', or spelled "AndrAIa" if you are starring in the Canadian cartoon show "Reboot!"

You may have also heard of "Andrea" as an audio company.

Modern headsets and vintage radios alike bear "Andrea" as a brandname (unknown if Related).

I also have an intercomm device either from an F15 or a simulator that bears the companyname "Andrea" on her Label...

Similar to "Laura", "Andrea" has been used as a last name: According to an eBay(tm) auction showing a picture of the book's cover, a man named Alfred J. Andrea wrote a college textbook...

So in otherwords, it's possible that name Andrea Radio Corporation could possibly be referencing someone's last, not first, name....

By the same token, "Dr. Laura" could have just as easily been a legitimate professional name

... (long thing about name "Laura" snipped out) ...

So in other words, "Andrea" is like the Swiss army knife of names... male or female, first, middle or last... if you find a stray dog with a name tag, "Andrea", that tag tells -zip- about that dog... that could even be WHERE HE -WORKS- :-D
