I love the name Sam for a girl (not short for Samara or Samantha or whatever). I like the nickname Sammi. :)

I frequently call my niece, Samantha, Sam because when she was younger she was a tom-boy, and it also suits her so much better. Almost everyone calls her Sam now. We also sometimes call her Sammie or Sam'r. I absolutely love the name Sam by itself, but I guess my sis beat me to using it.

I only like this name for a boy. In my opinion, it's ugly for a girl.

Sam is the name of one of Danny Phantom's best friends. She's a goth, and also a ultra-recyclo vegetarian (she doesn't eat anything with a face on it). You either love her or hate her, pretty much.

Strangely, I know a guy called Sam. The strange thing is that Sam is apparently a short form of the name Samael, which has got to be one of the strangest, weirdest and most bewitching names I've ever heard. He hates it. I find it fascinating. Our first ever conversation was about his name, with me going "How the hell did you get a name like Samael? You Gnostic or something?".

Samael is, in Gnostic mythology, the name of the 'blind god' or 'God of the Blind', a third of the evil Demiurge. Primarily, the name in Judaicas is of the Angel of Death and means 'venom of God'. His mother was a philosophy student who got hooked on Gnosticism, and she liked the sound of Samael. He was -very- nearly named Yaldabaoth or Azarael. His brother got Azarael instead.

Poor guy xP Love him, though.

I really love this name. It's short yet nice. If I will ever have a son I'll get Sam/Sem into his name somehow.

It's a great name for girls when it's a shortened form of Samantha. It's an okay name for guys, but it just seems kinda common. However, I like a guy named Sam, so believe me, my impressions of the name are overall good.

Sam, the Eagle, is a Muppet. He the blue American Eagle that often disapproves, yet eventually goes along with, the muppet capers. He's pretty dead-pan and serious.

Also Sam Waterston is a criminal lawyer on the popular show Law & Order. It's often suggested these two Sams look alike.

I adore Sam for a boy, I will almost definitely use it one day. However I really, really dislike it for a girl, it's far to masculine!

It can be used as a pet form of Samnang (especially if someone with that name is living in an English-speaking country where that name is not commonly used).

I prefer this name MUCH more for a girl than a boy! For a girl it sounds trendy and stylish! For a boy it sounds like a computer nerd.
-- drpepper  7/4/2008
Personally, I find it to be a rather sweet and youthful name, that would suit girls as much as it suits boys.
-- BlackMartian923  9/14/2008
I've always thought Sam was such a warm name, for a guy or a girl. I've known some annoying Sams, but they didn't ruin it for me. I still love this name.

Personally, I love this name for a boy. I hate for a girl.

It's an endearing name, but seriously don't like it for a girl. When I hear the name I think of an old man in overalls with a harmonica and a coon dog.
