    Lightbulb Braham, v2

    I'm starting over with Braham. It's a place name (Braham, Minnesota) and surname.

    The first thing I'd like to know is how you all would pronounce it.

    Would you be more apt to pronounce Braham as BRAY-um, BRAM, or BRUH-ham?

    Do you think this is a name fit for use? Do you like it or would it make you roll your eyes every time you saw it?

    Thanks!

    I'd pronounce it as Bruh-hum... Abraham without the A.

    I think it is a name that is fit for use. I wouldn't roll my eyes at all as there are alot worse names out there and this name doesn't have any bad associations as far as I am concerned.
    To me all it looks like is a variation of Abraham.. nothing more, nothing less

    I, too, would pronounce it Brah-HAM, like Abraham. I think it looks sort of cool, but I would much prefer to see Bram or even Brahms, pretentious as that may be. I just like the connection to the composer.

    Pretentious or not, Brahms is fantastic. I actually have Brahm on my list currently. But there is just something about Braham that I love.

    Thank you!

    I would say "bray-um" like Graham. (I seem to be the only American here who's never heard the "gram" pronunciation used for Graham.) I'm not really a fan of the name. It's just kind of blah to me. I like Bram though.
