Thursday Thirteen - #1


Thirteen Things about YOUR NAME

1 . My mommy called me Blackie, when I was a kitten, cause she didn't know if I was a girl or boy.
2 . Her friend Melodie (after they found out I was a girl) said Blackie wasn't a girl's name and that I looked like a Samantha.
3 . So, I became Samantha Black.
4 . My nickname is Sammie.
5 . I know I'm in trouble when Mom calls me Samantha Black, in that tone of hers.
6 . Dad just calls me Sam.
7 . I like to watch Bewitched, because her name is Samantha.
8 . I don't know any other cats named Samantha.
9 . My name is Aramaic and means Listener.
10 . The name Samantha has only been around since the latter part of the 18th century.
11 . Famous Samantha's include, Samantha Eggar, an actress; Samantha Mulder of the TV Series X-Files; and Samantha Fox, a 1980's pop singer.
12 . Samantha was one of the 10 most popular names for females in the USA between 1990 and 2003, according to the U.S. Social Security Administration records.
13 . Just call me Samantha Black, C.P.I. (Cat Private Investigator)

Our cousin Merlin's mother was named Samantha. She was named after Bewitched and was all black except for a little spot of white under her chin. She also had 7 toes on each front paw. Merlin is a tuxedo like you, has 5 toes on each front paw, and can be found at merlincat.blogspot.com . Since I was the one who named his mother Samantha (we called her Sammie), you know that I like your name too!
