This was the original first name of U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant. (Ulysses was his middle name. The S stood for Simpson, his mother's maiden name.)

The related name Hyrum is often used by LDS parents because the prophet Joseph Smith's brother was named Hyrum Smith. Hyrum was martyred alongside Joseph and is a major role in the church's history.

My friend named her son Dayton Charles Hiram. I think it's an okay middle name, but not a good first name.

It sounds quite pompous and pretentious, and it's like someone saying ''Hi, ram'' or ''high ram''. I never did like the sound of it.

This was once a HIGHLY popular name in the American South. Any Southerner has at least one three or four generations back.

I forgot about this name! It sounds really 1800's, but I like it. It's really unique, and it reminds me of the name Silas for some reason. I pronounce it high-ram or high-rim.

My husband's name is Hiram. We pronounce it Hi-rum. It's an old family name and he doesn't particularly care for it. He usually has to repeat it and spell it to anyone new he meets.
