We have always wanted to name our daughter (we got 2 boys instead) Samara. We would call her "Sam" for short.  My friends always bring up that it reminded them of the creepy girl from the movie "The Ring." Does the name sound creepy to you? Oh we ended up naming our first son, Aidan, which happens to be the little boy's name in the movie. Not on purpose though! We named him after Aidan Quinn, the actor. LOL! So I'm hoping for pink dust this time around. I'll have plenty of time to decide on a name. We also like the name Allison.

I hate to say it, but The Ring was the first thing that came to mind.  I would choose another name...

Samantha?

Love the name, but since 'The Ring' it would be on a par with naming your son Damien...

I think it's a pretty name, and so what if it was in the ring?

Even though it made me think of The Ring, I still think it's a lovely name. Very exotic and different.

I wouldn't worry about the connotations, though. My son has the same name as a movie "villain", but no one pays mind.

I have always liked this name but when I learned it was the name of the girl in The Ring it totally ruined it for me.
