Samee ( also spelt as Sami and Sameeh) is a name which means one who hears. It is a convention to use either a prefix Abdus or a suffix Ullah along the name, which gives meanings of the servant of All Hearing or hearer of God respectively.

As-Samee is one of the names of Allah meaning the All Hearing. According to Islamic tradition, a Muslim may not be given any of the names of God in exactly the same form. Likewise nobody may be named As-Samee (The All Hearing), but may be named Samee (Hearer). This is because of the belief that God is almighty and no human being is the equivalent to God.

The name Samee should not be confused with another Arabic name Sami written as in Arabic. Sami is also given name in Scandinavia, America and many other countries. It has different origins and meanings. For example, the Arabic Sami means elevated or sublime. When spelled in English, it can be spelled as Sammy and often mistakenly confused as the abbreviated English name Sammy.

The feminine counterpart of this name in Arabic is Sameea or Samiya meaning one who listens.
