I like the name Sam. My DH isn't in love with it, but doesn't mind it. But he doesn't adore Samuel. I dont want Sam on its own as its too much of a nickname.

I can't really think of any other "Sam" names (well, apart from Samson!).

Greg, Ben, Max

I suppose Samwise is a bit too Lord of the Rings and not a real name but it's the only other one I can think of.

Simon Andrew Matthew for example? Initials that spell a word are always fun!

Sorry - just seen you've thought of that already!

Samwell. A minor enough GoT character to get away with?

Samwell. Perhaps too Game of Thrones...

Samvel (Armenian name)

Solomon, possibly? or Sami.

Isambard (although DH wasn't having any of it, our Sam is a Samuel)
Bassam (Muslim name)

Not Samwell! It's the name of a guy who made a YouTube song that goes "I said what, what - in the butt". Google it if you don't believe me!

I see i totally misunderstood. I thought you meant short snappy classic one syllable names. blush

Haha no probs, Warrior, I thought that's how you read it!

If you're tea drinkers how about Assam?!

Samwell and Samweis/Samwise

Solomon is lovely MN Sol or Solly.

Or you could use a name ending in -sam (can't think of any!)

Or give him names with initials that spell Sam.

Or just call him Sam.

Personally I'd just call him Sam.

But I have a Ben, not short for Benjamin.
