Origin: First recorded in the U.S.A. in the 18th century. The etymology is uncertain. Most probably a feminine form of Samuel, possibly influenced by Anthea. Other suggestions include the Aramaic noun שמענתא , from ܫܡܥܬܐ. In India, Samantha can be interpreted as a variant spelling of Samanta, from the Sanskrit word meaning "universal, adjacent".
Samantha is a 1992 American film starring actress Martha Plimpton. Though at the time already a film actress for nearly ten years, this was the first vehicle in which Plimpton was the star. The film co-starred Dermot Mulroney, Hector Elizondo, Mary Kay Place and Ione Skye. It was a commercial failure, with mixed critical review. The film was released in the fall and promoted as a romance blockbuster. A soundtrack/score album was released in anticipation of success that never came. The film featured cameo appearances by Robert Picardo and Maryedith Burnell. Burnell had previously played the character of Helen Buckman, mother to Julie Buckman in the television version of the film Parenthood; in the film version, Julie was played by Martha Plimpton.
