I am pregnant. This is anonymous as my secret has not been released yet apart from my husband Mike and my daughter Lily. I did the test today. Over dinner, we were discussing names as we want to get them over and done with as soon as possible. We thought a multi sex name as then it wouldn't matter what sex the child will be. We thought Sam as it is sweet for both a boy and a girl. It is a lovely classic name that Mike and I both love. It is wonderful to be pregnant as it has been ten years since Lily who I gave birth to at 16. She thought of Sam which is amazing!

I was named Samantha, but my mother is the only one that ever calls me that. I stopped going by Samie at age 8 because everyone I knew had a dog or cat named that (or seemed like it). I have gone by Sam since then. All my friends and family agree that Sam suits me much more than Samantha or Samie. My biggest issue is when I introduce myself to someone as Sam, they for some reason feel the need to ask if it is short for Samantha. I doubt that they would ask a male if it was short for Samuel or Samson. I've come to the point of saying that it is short for Saaaaaaaaaaaaaam or Samalamadingadong.

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.

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 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.
