Noam Chompsky pronounces his name like Gnome. I also have a friend who pronounces his name Noh-ahm.

The name is correctly pronounced as NOH-ahm. That is, if you call the normal Hebrew pronunciation correct. The GNOME one is an American mutation, probably.

Ditto Noa.

Earthnut, I think you're wrong about that. I have always heard people referring to Chomsky as NOH-am, not GNOME.

I saw this movie, it's a Jewish film, and the guy who seduces the main character is called AVINOAM, which in my opinion is much better than just NOAM.

I like Noam. It's a very nice, strong name.

The name sounds pleasant enough.

I really like this name. It sounds more polished than just Noah, and a little bit different without being too odd. I would certainly consider this as a name for a son if I had one.

A very nice name, I like it better than Noah. It sounds too similar to No'm to be used where I am though.

This name does sound better than Noah, but it's unfortunately associated with the hideous Noam Chomsky.

It's a nice name, and I don't mind the Chomsky association, but it sounds like 'gnome'.

The name Noam was given to 105 baby boys born in the US in 2012. It's a nice alternative to Noah, which is far too overused.
