"My name is Samir. I have lived in Denmark and Poland most of my life, and overhere people like my name. Its easy to pronounce. The only thing is whether u wanna call him Sameer, Samir, Samer, Samire. I think the most standard is Sameer and Samir. The other ones are not so common. Greetings Samir Salman" May. 5, 2010:
