God heard

An American classic, Samantha has strength and spunk, thanks to sporty nicknames like Sam and Sammy. It was at the peak of its popularity in the 1990s and firmly in the top 10 on the Social Security Administration rankings from 1988 to 2006. It has long been considered the female version of the name Samuel, and some parents are turning to just Sam for their daughters, as Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards did. Notable Samanthas on TV include talk show host and comedian Samantha Bee, the tomboyish and tough Sam on iCarly and the confident Samantha Jones on Sex and the City.
