In the Bible, God changed Abram’s name to Abraham and declared him “father of a multitude of nations.” But that doesn’t mean the name disappeared. It’s still frequently used, whether in full or shortened to a nickname (Abe, Bram). Like Adam, Simon and Moses, Abram is an important religious name for parents seeking a spiritual connection. While it’s not even close to the popularity of Abraham, it’s still a meaningful option.
