I think ‘Sam’ would be a good nickname for this name. I don’t particularly care for the names Samuel or Samson despite liking Sam, so this name could perhaps be used in a similar way. I like it because it sounds kind of old-school yet edgy - probably because it brings up thoughts of the Salem Witch Trials. Despite that, you could argue it has a certain respectability to it because it’s related to the name Solomon.

Meaning: From the Biblical Hebrew שלם (shalém) meaning "complete, intact", from the Proto-Semitic *šalām- 'peace, well-being, welfare'. In the Bible Salem was the place of which Melchizedek was king, mostly identified with Jerusalem. Salem is also the name of several cities around the world, notably Salem, Massachusetts, where the infamous Salem witch trials of 1692 took place, as well as the capital of Oregon.
Salem is also the name of several bands, and Salem Saberhagen is the name of the warlock-turned-cat in the 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch' comics and television series.
