This is my son's name and we love it. Personally, it doesn't bother us whether it's pronounced "Gram" or "Gray-um", but we do get a lot of "Gram-ee" when being called from waiting rooms in doctor's offices.

Usually in Canada it is pronounced Graym, with a slight emphasis on an 'em' ending. Graeme. I'd say Graham like gram.
