What do people think of Samson please ?

I think if he has long hair he'll be tortured by idiots asking him to lift everything, and if he has short hair he'll get tortured by idiots saying "oh delilah gave you a haircut then?" or "I suppose this phone/bag/book/whatever is too heavy for you now".

It's a cat's name

I know a dog called Samson. Not really keen for a person, sorry.

Samuel is very nice.

EllenDegenerate Sun 09-Oct-16 17:13:56

I like it, strong male name, strong history, not at all common.

GazingAtStars Sun 09-Oct-16 17:14:47

Samuel is boring and not the name the op asked for opinions on!

I quite like samson

I know a 16 year old Samson. No one mocked his name. He was simply called Sam most of the time.

I don't actually mind the name, but I hear Samson and instantly think 'and Delilah'.

justdontevenfuckingstart Sun 09-Oct-16 17:32:17

Samson is what I call my dog so I instantly think dog. Sorry.

Not great. I love Samuel though.

I had a horse called Samson. I'm not keen, it sounds a little...dull. But I do love Sam.

I really like it, though he will almost certainly become known as Sam, which wouldn't bother me but may bother you.

I really like it. It's a solid Biblical name, and makes a change from Samuel.

sugarplumfairy28 Sun 09-Oct-16 19:32:16

Not really my taste, feels like it's trying to be different while still being safe, although pointless, as Sam feels like a fairly obvious and immediate shortened name.

MotherDuckSaid Sun 09-Oct-16 19:44:57

My OH is called Samuel.. thought Samson (son of Sam..) might be fun !
I like Samuel too, but we have an older son and r concerned it might upset him to have not been named after his dad, but then his younger brother having his name ?

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 09-Oct-16 19:49:43

That shines a bit of a different light OP.
In that case I'd go for Samson, but he will, as I assume, be called Sam, like his Dad.

Heratnumber7 Sun 09-Oct-16 19:49:48

It wouldn't be a good name for a man if he grows up small and weedy.
It's a lot to live up to.

Honeybee79 Sun 09-Oct-16 19:51:16

No, because of the whole Delilah thing. Samuel is great tho.

Ohdofuckoffplease Sun 09-Oct-16 20:01:30

Well your DH has a lovely name then grin!

Personally, I'd think of a different name, if I'm completely honest. Even if my DH's name followed by 'son' didn't sound ludicrous (it does) I wouldn't like to use it. There's something I don't like about it personally. It's somehow worse to me than just using Samuel.

I like Samson and I like what it means to your family smile

DerelictMyBalls Tue 11-Oct-16 20:25:23

I like it.

rainbowstardrops Tue 11-Oct-16 20:32:03

I'm not keen I'm afraid and not keen on the idea behind it either. I'd worry that DS1 would feel put out.
Sorry.
