- Personal experiences with the name Abram: | Edit
My two year old is an Abram. Everyone that hears it is always very surprised but always say wow that's a great name. We get a lot of people calling him Abraham or trying to spell it with a random h in the name like Abrahm. On the whole I have loved having him have an old strong, sounding name that you don't hear often.
