  3. Samantha says:

    My friends just call me Sam but my family calls me Mantha and i HATE it but they’ll never stop. They say Mantha bc my sister couldn’t pronounce Samantha when she was young and said Mantha and it stuck. 😔

    • Samantha Jane says:

      All my friends call me Sam as long as my parents aren’t around as my parent’s don’t like me being called Sam as it’s my grandad’s name. I always say that they can call me SJ because it’s my initials and I’m used to it as that’s what all 3 of my brothers call me. My niece and nephew (6+7) Can’t say Samantha so they call me Mantha as well it’s cute, to be honest. My dad calls me Samantha Jane and my mum just calls me lazy.

    i dont like using my full name when introducing myself, i usually just do sam, but my family has a bunch of nicknames for me
