The name Abram is a boy's name of Hebrew origin meaning "father of multitudes". Abram is ranked #419 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Bible Names for Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "A brother or sister for little Jack or Olivia".
From the experts:
Abram was Abraham's original name in the Bible; it's more user-friendly but with a bit less gravitas. And it does offer that cool nickname Bram, as well as the friendly Abe. After some early American usage, in 1936 Abram completely disappeared for nearly forty years, until its return in the 1970s.
It was the middle name of President James A. Garfield.
