The name dandy is a boy's name. It usually sounds like Tandy, Dandie, Dante, Dantay, Tandey and Thandy. Some of the other similar names are Sandy, Danny, Danby and Randy.

Dandy also refers to a man who places meticulous significance upon physical manifestation, advanced language, and the cultivation of leisurely hobbies. This word first appeared in a Scottish edge ballad, around 1780. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica 1911, dandy is the short form to jack-a-dandy. Around the 21st century this word tuned to gain another meaning. It was considered to be a jocular, frequently mocking adjective, which means "fine" or "great." On the other hand, a 'dandy' is a debonair, well-dressed, and self-centered man.
