Can Sam stand on its own?

I am curious, DH suggested [name]Sam[/name] as a name and i like it…but can it stand on its own? or looks too wierd? opinions?

No, I don’t think it can stand on its own, especially for a girl. What about as a nickname for [name]Samara[/name], [name]Samira[/name], [name]Samantha[/name], [name]Samuela[/name], or [name]Samanta[/name]?

Well, [name]Tiger[/name] Woods has a daughter called [name]Sam[/name] [name]Alexis[/name], so I think it works, but it traps you into using another nickname name for any future children (or at least I think this…). Luckily, [name]Tiger[/name] got the memo and named his next child, a boy, [name]Charlie[/name] [name]Axel[/name]. [name]Way[/name] to stick with a theme, [name]Tiger[/name]!

Not crazy about [name]Sam[/name] on it’s own… It just sounds so boyish to me, and I think a girl’s name needs to be balanced.
[name]Samantha[/name], [name]Samara[/name], [name]Samanda[/name], etc would all be better alternatives. Good luck :slight_smile:
