I think It's a beautiful name, so much so that my wife and I named our baby girl Samantha. She's only a year and a half old and she already has many nicknames. I think/hope she really likes it when she grows up....

9/20/2022 8:19:50 PM

We named our daughter'samantha, it was the only name we could agreed on. Almost a quarter years have passed and I ask her if she like her name; her answer is alwas YES. He other nicknames are Sam, Sami or the most endearment is Lamb. It'started as Sami Lambe. H.S volleyball game I was yelling " Great Dig Lamb".

6/20/2022 1:31:12 AM

My name is Samantha but most people call me Sam or Sammi. I use to like being called Sam but as i have got older i prefer to use SAMANTHA because It'sounds more grownup. I love my name and my initials because they spell SAM :) People use to struggle to spell my name and i use to have samanfer'samanfa, wrote on christmas cards. Other names people use for me include, mantha, sammie, sammy :D

6/19/2022 7:13:12 AM

I like being called Sam or Sammy better than Samantha...when people call me Samantha i feel like they don't like me enough to call me Sam or like I'm in trouble. But thats probably because all my life i've been Sam or Sammy, no one really calls me Samantha in the first place.

6/19/2022 12:48:54 AM

Hardly anyone calls me Samantha, It's always Sam, which is boyish. And Sammie is too childish. Since I live in Asia, many people have problems spelling and/or pronouncing the "tha" . I think It's an ok name, but doesn't suit me or my life very well.

6/13/2022 2:53:06 PM

This is my name, and its fine. Although people often mispell is, making it jessie. Moderatly annoying, but no big deal. Short period where people would call me jessica, which was a pain in the ass, but it passed.

6/3/2022 4:04:12 PM

My name is Samantha Rose. I was named after'samantha from Bewitched. My mother only ever calls me "Sam", and when I was younger and in trouble would I be called Samantha. I can count the'samanthas' i've met on one hand! I'll admit It's a pretty name.

5/26/2022 8:36:00 AM

Samantha is a cool name, years ago I knew this beautiful Italian-German woman with that name, very nice person, great human being, She told me to call her "Sam" for short. Her middle name was Miley, Samantha Miley had a nice ring to it. I am also reminded of the character of Samantha "Sam" Leslie Jackson in the 2015 comedy fI'm "Ted 2" the character was called Samantha L. Jackson,

5/19/2022 2:45:00 AM

5/16/2022 5:06:18 PM

People always tell me It's a very sexy name. And I do my best to live up to that!

5/15/2022 11:43:12 PM

My name is Samanatha. I go by Sam in the work place. I like it because it is also a boys name, and people are often suprized when'they meet me that I am infact a girl. I like that Tom-boy aspect.

5/15/2022 1:39:18 PM

does it come from the name Samuel? No hebrew origin for this name to my knowledge, unless it's a late development from another name.

4/22/2022 6:35:24 AM

Its my middle name and i just love it, but i prefer Gabriella, i dont actually know why. Probably because it reminds me of Arcangel Gabriel. But if i have a daughter her name will be definately Samantha.

4/19/2022 3:33:36 AM

The name'samson was given'to one of the judges of Israel. It means "sun" or "bright as the'sun" which is symbolic of the'story. Samson's hair was never cut. His stren'th was symbolized by the rays of the'sun, the'sun's stren'th, which were represented by his radiant locks. Delilah tried many ways to discover the'source of Samson's stren'th, but when she cut his hair, she had symbolically cut off the rays of the'sun, the'sun's stren'th. Thus Samson, the'sun-man, lost his stren'th.

4/6/2022 9:50:42 PM

I LOVE MY NAME!

My daughter is Samantha Cate. She was named by her oldest brother after a good family friend. However her youngest brother has changed her name 5 times since she was born in January of 2020. Samantha has gone from Mantha to Manthee to Samina to Saminee now, the name that has stuck with everyone is Mina. She answers to Mina as well as to Samanth Cate. I think Mina will be her regular nickname. I love it and think that Samantha Cate and Mina fit her personallity perfectly!!

I was named after the witch. I was either going to be Samantha or Wendy. My dad was just determined I should be named after a witch! Since I found this out, I have always planned to name my daughter Tabitha. If I have two girls, the'second shall be Sabrina! But the cool part is, My initials are SAM. And when my partner (who would father the children) gives them his last name, they will be Tabitha - TAB and Sabrina SAB. So cool!

8/14/2021 9:47:06 PM
