- this is what we named my 9 month old daughter. I really like this name because it's classic, biblical but not very commonly used. It's very feminine in a cutesy way.
- my daughter is Samantha Lei and I think it is a very feminine name and old fashioned
- "Bewitched" comes to mind. I have liked this name since I was really really little. It's got a strong sound to it.
- Nice sound, obvious nickname, not overused, won't go 'out,' almost conservative nowadays.
- I think of a well rounded girl who enjoys sports as well as girly things.
- Hey well I love Samantha for a girl i like names that are pretty and unusual
- sorry to see it "over-used" now
- my favorite girls name of all. Always loved "Bewitched" because I wanted to be able to twitch my nose and have cool things happen. Also love the nickname Sam--makes me think of a strong, independent woman who can take care of herself.
- Sam or Sami can be used for a nickname. The name is adorable.
- I was in Love with the name Samantha from Bewitched. Then Sammy Jo from Dynasty. So I chose: Samantha Jo---Thought I'd call her Sammy Jo, but really never have. Feminine and strong.
- Samantha Katherine: This name sounds so elegant and flows well. It's also simple and easy to spell and say.
- Samantha Paige: have loved the name Samantha since I was a little girl, and I like Paige too
- Samantha tyler: just because it's a strong yet feminine name. Also the name of my strong but feminine child.
Samantha is a name that was first recorded in the 18th century New England. Some speculate it was coined by African slaves in the USA, as a feminine form of Sam. Basically, nobody knows exactly where this name comes from. It wasn't very popular until 1873 when Marietta Holley wrote a series of 10 books about the adventures of a main character called Samantha. It fell out of favor again in the early 20th century when it was resurrected as a character in the television series "Bewitched."
