I like this as a nickname for Abraham. It's cool sounding.

I like this name, it's short and strong; a good name for a boy. It's quite popular where I live (Holland) but people mostly use it as a name on itself rather than as a short form of Abraham. My parents used to call me "Brammetje", a pet form of Bram, before I was born and they didn't know yet if I was a girl of a boy.

Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt (spelled with a "o" here) is an antagonist in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving.

I adore Bram – especially after reading his masterpiece ‘Dracula’. Whether it’s short for Abraham or Abram (which I prefer Abraham) it’s a nice nickname, and also wonderful by itself. Also, it has a lovely gothic edge to it. (:

In Margaret Laurence's novel The Stone Angel, a variant of this name (Brampton) is used as the name of Hagar Currie's husband. He is nicknamed Bram.

I think Bram is a wonderful name! I prefer the Brahm pronunciation, however there are some that pronounce it Bram like Sam. Either way I think it's a good strong name.

Bram is cool - it's great to find a cool-sounding name like this with a lot of tradition behind it, as opposed to some new-fangled soap opera choice or borrowing somebody else's one-syllable surname. Great pronounced either way.

My son's name.
He's one of the 50 baby boys named Bram that were born in the US in 2012.
It suits him perfectly.
I love it.

Dracula by Bram Stoker was one of the first classic books I read (I was around 12). And I loved it very much.

So Bram reminds me of my love for books because of the link with Stoker.

I also love gothic names and it is strong even if it is a nickname.
