SamName is one of the heroic poems about the courage of Sam Nariman, which was written in imitation of Ferdowsi's Shahname. Knowing the composer of this poem and also the period of its composition is one of the complex topics of Iranian epic literature. In some recent sources, SamName has been attributed to Khajooie Kermani, the famous poet of the eighth century, and the attention to this point and the mention of Khajou in a number verses of this poem, the authenticity of which is doubtful, has caused some scholars to consider the SamName as the poem of this poet. However, a number of other scholars have rejected this attribution. Recently, by examining the manuscript versions of the ShabrangName and based on the phrase at the end of one of its manuscripts, a researcher has hypothesized that SamName is the poem of an anonymous poet named Khajou Shahnameh Khan Korati.
