  • "Abraham is a really mean person but he makes someone else happy and makes the ship of "Mabraham" To be honest he's a literal rat and super mean but like he's so nice to that other person so yeah" Jun. 10, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "We're going to call our son abraham, but will be pronouncing it ab-ra-ham (instead of ay-bra-ham) since that's the French pronounciation. I think it's a great name. Not sure about a nick name, though." Aug. 11, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have an Abraham and I love his name. It is strong and is an easy nickname for the family who likes nicknames. I was nervous people would sing "father Abraham, had many sons, many sons have father Abraham" but only the first week from my brother and no more." Feb. 12, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love this name. I would have given it to a son, but alas. So I gave it to my dog. He was usually called Abe. It's not a name anyone would tease you about except to call you Honest Abe." Jan. 20, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I've rarely had anyone mis-spell or mis-pronounce Abraham, but Abe is often pronounced Ah-Bee by non-native English speakers. It's a great name because it's unique, but the stats here show a steady rise in it's use, so that may be changing." Jan. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "my brothers name is abraham but we say it differentlly, since we are hispanic" Aug. 25, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "Abraham is VERY old-fashioned, but it has a certain appeal to it. I wouldn't shorten it to 'Abe', though, that sounds too much like 'Ape'!" Mar. 9, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "my son's name is abraham and it suits him perfectly. it is actually a really cute name for a baby. people often identify it as a bible name, which is ok because that is part of why we chose it." Aug. 23, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Abraham, often people call me adam if they don't know me, I don't know why, some call me abe, but since it was my grandpa's nickname so that the two of us would not get confused. He's dead now so I don't want to be called Abe =D" Jul. 16, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Abraham and people misspell it all the time. I've seen different variations, ranging from Abruham to Aberham. It's kind of sad actually. I still love my name though because I don't know too many other Abraham's. People always call me president though which I take as a compliment. Finally, people call me Abe, Abey, Abey Baby (coined by my kindergarten teacher). It's a really great name and I am glad that I have it." Feb. 5, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Its been ok but just some people spell and prenounce wrong and white chicks actualy like my name." Jan. 28, 2008: Report as inappropriate
