The first occurence known of the name Abraham is Ab-ra-mu, and was found on clay tablets in cuneiform writings at the Ebla site, an important city of ancient Syria, in around 2500 B.C. Other biblical names were also common at that time such as E-sa-um ( = Esau ), Ish-ma-ilu ( = Ishmael), Is-ra-ilu ( = Israel), Da-'u'dum ( = David) and Sa-'u-lum ( = Saul).
