Reply to: History of Samantha by Samm
Obviously what you read was wrong. :) Samantha was not invented in the 1960s. It was created back in the late 1700s in North America. There are plenty of Samanthas born in the late 1700s or early 1800s in genealogies of New England families.

For example:

Samantha Dayton, born 1805 in North Haven, Connecticut:

Samantha Ballard, born 1798:

Samantha Coe, baptized Sept. 1790 in Granville, Massachusetts:
