Dutch variation of Abraham
"father of multitudes"

Bram Origin and Meaning

The name Bram is boy's name of Hebrew, Dutch origin meaning "father of multitudes".
Bram has an unusual measure of character and charm for a one-syllable name; it started as a hipper-than-Abe diminutive of the biblical Abraham, but is also an independent Irish and Dutch name, made famous by Irish-born Dracula creator Bram (nee Abraham) Stoker. Bram is currently Number 16 in the Netherlands; Bram Howard was a character on The West Wing.

Another route to Bram is Bramwell, as in early actor Bramwell Fletcher, who — speaking of horror movies — was noted for his mad scenes in the 1932 film The Mummy.
