Andrew Kirke

"You should see Sloper and Kirke, they’re pathetic, even worse than I am."
-- Ron Weasley (OP25)



Andrew is the English form of the Greek name Ανδρεας (Andreas), which is derived from ανδρειος (andreios), meaning "manly, masculine" (Behind the Name).

Kirke means "church" and derives from Old Norse Kirkja . As a surname, it is found mainly in Scotland and the North of England (Internet Surname Database).
