The name is borne by the German historian Hiram Kümper, therefore one can add German (rare) to the usages.

Hiram Walker is a big alcohol distillery where I live. We live in a border city in Canada that was big on bootlegging to the USA. A lot of our city references Hiram Walker. Seems like an okay name. Might not be usable here.

My husband and I absolutely love the name Hiram! We named our boy Hiram after my great grandfather and we get nothing but compliments over his name. We pronounce it Hi-rum or Hi for short. It’s a strong yet rare name that is from the Bible. We couldn’t be more pleased.

This is not a good name. I’m friends with a kid named Hiram. He’s really unpopular, and it might have to do with his name. Great kid, though. Just goes to show the name doesn’t always make the person.

Hiram McDaniels is a character from the podcast, Welcome to Night Vale. He is a five headed dragon, a blogger, a former fugitive charged with insurance fraud, and a former candidate for mayor of Night Vale. Hiram escaped police custody after being pulled over for speeding and giving the Sheriff's Secret Police an obviously fake driver's license.

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.

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.

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

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.

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