You asked what would be your Hebrew name.

Well… I think it depends.
1) If you were born Jewish:
- the Jewish name of your grandfather (or great grandfather)
- a name starting with the same initial: Asher, Aharon
- a name sounding a bit alike: Dror…
- a name with the same meaning: Adam?

2) If you converted to Judaism: in theory you can chose any name you want, but in fact you’re told it’s better to chose the name of a very great person. Probably Abraham, since your name begins with a “A”.
