    Yay, yay, yay!
    I absolutely adore Ephraim! It's in my top 10. Playful and mischievous come to mind when I hear it, for some reason, especially with the nn Remy. I like that it's an underused vintage (and biblical) name. I just love it! My combo's Ephraim Gregory Silas if you're interested.

    Only slight downside is that there could be pronunciation issues. Personally I love Eff-ruhm, and don't mind Eff-raym, but I'm not a fan of Ee-fra-him at all. But I think it would just be a matter of a few corrections. There are alternative spellings (I think), that would make saying it easier, but the original is my favourite regardless.

    I'm neutral on Ephraim. I don't really like or hate it. It's a decent name, but not something I would personally use myself for a child. I also like the nickname Remy for it. It's unexpected and sweet.

    Love it, especially spelled Ephram. I have liked it since there was a character on an old WGN show Everwood. When pregnant with my 2nd child, there was a character on Star Trek named Zefram, which was a nice compromise with hubby and was our boy pick. We ended up having another girl, but Ephram and Zefram are still high on my list!

    I know as a name nerd I shouldn't have this issue, but when I see it, I don't know how to pronounce it. I'm sure many non-name-nerds would have that issue as well. So, I'd ask if that bothers you, or if it would bother you if your child has to correct people or tell them how to say his name. That said, if you're okay with it, it's an unusual classic. Go for it.
