Personal experiences with the name Bram: | Edit

We named our now 2-year-old son Abraham, but he goes strictly by Bram. I like this short form, but it's nice to have the classic full name in reserve.

My son is named Abraham but hates it and only answers to Bram. he is currently in pre-k, and the teachers said that they had never had a kid named Bram.

I named my son Bram, but kids made fun of him, so when we moved, he started going by his middle name, Boyd.
