Abraham is a lovely name - strong, classic and masculine! And not overused! Abe is a great nickname, but Bram is good too. Why not wait and see?

You and your DH can have different nicknames for your DC! My Mum and Dad have an Alexander who gets Sandy from Mum and Alex from Dad.

It's a bit much for me...and I generally like OT like Abe though..

Bram Stoker wrote Dracula, just so you know!

I like Abraham and Abe. Might be a wee bit of a mouthful maybe? That's he only only slight hesitation I would have. Abrham is long and abe v short and thereks not much in between.

Other names I like are Leo, Joseph, Milo, John, Dominic.

I absolutely love Abraham - I would go for Abe as the nickname too. It's in our top 2 or 3 at the moment.

I think it is a strong yet kind sounding name. Much like Joseph.

We are going to call DC3 Abe if he is boy! I love Abraham but our surname is 3 syllables and starts with A so would sound a bit too much! Also like Seth, Elias and Jobe.

Love it but prefer nn Bram or Abram!

I love it. This has been top of my list for a while. I also love Abelsmile

It is quite a strong name. Just makes me think of Abraham Lincoln really. I think for me it is an old man's name but if you like it, I don't see anything wrong with it.

Love Abe! Also like Art.

tvmum1976 Wed 27-Mar-13 19:52:31

thanks! DH likes Bram too but for some reason i don't like it as much. not sure why.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 27-Mar-13 19:51:11

Like it a lot but prefer Bram as nn, not Abe.

tvmum1976 Wed 27-Mar-13 19:50:38

What do people think of the name Abraham (nn Abe)? I really like it, but is it too much? Also, and sorry if this is too demanding but if you hate it, could you mention a boy's name or couple of names that you do like so I can see if we just have different name styles/tastes or if it truly terrible!
Thanks very much.
