Samantha is a Baby Girl Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Samantha.

As far as names go, Samantha is a fairly new name having been created in the late 18th-century in the southern U.S. It leaped up in popularity in the 1960s thanks to a certain nose-twitching witch in the hit TV show Bewitched, then continued on the road to name fame thanks to Tony Danza’s fictional daughter Samantha Micelli from the 80s show Who’s the Boss?, as well as Carrie’s best friend in Sex and the City played by Kim Catrall. It has remained a top girl name ever since. Parents also seem to gravtiate towards Samantha’s fun nickname, Sam.
