I'm 10 weeks pregnant, and about 5 months ago I had a dream that i was holding a healthy blue eyed boy in my arms and i looked at him and out of nowhere called him Samuel, and I believe that was a glimps into G-ds plans, G-d saw my future baby and showed me the joy he felt when he planed the birth of this child. I'm only 17 and that dream has helped me through this time, people can put me down but G-d has given me a gift and G-d loves this child very much, im sure its a boy and He will receive this name.

I have been waiting for a son for 14 years now and am now happily pregnant. His name has been Samuel for a long time for I have been heard of God. Question though, why do you abbreviate God as G-d?

My sister in law is pregnant, and ever since I have not only felt its a boy, and it was confirmed; but I have felt a connection with this baby. I asked God for his name and at the instant he said it was Samuel. Later on he confirmed it! This baby is a blessing!!!
i love this name

CK, people abbreviate God as G-d because His Name is holy and the Jewish people especially don't believe it should even be written on paper. That originates from the Hebrew name for God and has transferred over to the English (German) translation 'God'.
There is more detail to that, but that's the short of it.
Samuel is a good name, I really like it.

I found out after a struggle with an invitro pregnancy that I would never be able to care a child on my own. My husband & I began to pray that God would give us the child that needed us the most. Within a few mos. we able to adopt a 3 week old little boy. Samuel was the perfect name for him. Just like Hannah in the Bible, he was "asked of God."

We name our child Samuel. He was a blessing in our home and we had struggled to conceive a child before. We started to pray to god and hope we would be given a child. After my wife's 2nd miscarriage I prayed to God begging and hoping that would be given a child. Well 6 weeks after that last prayer my wife was pregnant and 9 months later she gave birth to a beautiful boy. We named him Samuel because god had given us a child. 4 months had passed since he had been born. We had put Samuel to bed. I woke up four hours later and I asked my wife if she had been up with the baby because he usually wakes us up she said no. I went to check on Samuel and he was not breathing so we rushed him to the hospital. Samuel had died of SIDS and we do not know why we had tried and tried over and over and nothing then we finally get that beautiful baby and he was taken from us. If god exists then why did my son have to die. I do not understand?
i love

Well i was pretty much annoyed with my name when i was a kid coz i was unable to pronounce it.. i just used to say that am sam... My mom and dad took this name coz they prayed to God to have a child and as an answer i was born. Trying to keep my life as pure as my name is.

I have been in love with this name as far back as i can remember and i always told myself that if i had a son that Samuel would be his name. I wanted a good strong name for him and i love it. Samuel was born on Dec.24'2009 he was my christmas gift!!! He is a blessing.
