Etymology of Samantha
Can anyone give the earliest use of the name "Samantha"? Is it used in the bible or Shakespeare? The oldest reference in the article is the 1960s television program bewitched. Is the name older than that? –Shoaler (talk) 19:49, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Samantha Crawford Connection to Popularity
Samantha "reappeared among the top 1,000 names for girls in 1958, when it ranked in 998th position, and in 1959, when it ranked in 993rd place."
