Names with Von as a prefix/was there ever a VON

Hi Rena and Wilfried,
   Thank you for that info......all info helps us to build a picture of
   the past.
   So does this mean the name Andree, Andreas, Andros etc originated in
   Greece and then as people travelled to far off lands they changed
   their names to suit the country they settled in, which has happened
   many times over the years and often happens even now ?
