An excellent mix of occupations for the top ten Andrews or Andys with one artist (Warhol), two musicians (Williams and Bird), two US Presidents (Jackson and Johnson), one tennis champion (Roddick), one commentator (Sullivan), one businessman (Carnegie), and two actors (Garcia and Griffith).
I compiled this list by searching for each of the Andrews and Andys on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online.
