A higher level of respect than -san. Can be used with a surname or given name, although being used with a surname is more common. Can be used for someone you greatly admire, but professionals of most areas are referred to as -sensei, or simply sensei.

Sama is an abbreviation for samating - meaning awesome,cool, really or very good at something.
This word started out in a 1920's Brookly ghetto as 'some kind of ting' but during the great depression a bunch of cotton pickers emmigrated to England to make a living and word spread. Over time 'some kind of' was shortened to some to make some ting then shortened again to sama, hence samating. In the early 21st century samating was shortened to sama for convenience. So infact, if you think about it all you're really saying is 'some'... how silly.
