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”.
