Moniker Morsel: Abraham

on December 5, 2013

Biblical, historical, and rhythmic, Abraham is an unexpected and refreshing choice for a boy. With multiple international variations and nicknames to choose from, including the warm, familiar Abe and the sleek, modern Bram, I think Abraham is certainly accessible.

Meaning: Hebrew “father of many”

Famous Abraham’s: Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States.

Sibling Name Ideas:

Eisha, Araminta, Bianca, Edeline
Arlo, Nicholas, Ezekiel (Love the sibset Bram and Zeke!), Josiah


Abraham Iago, Abraham Quincy
Emmett Abraham, Walter Abraham

My thoughts:
Abraham is a masculine, strong choice. He is grounded in history and sounds refined and mature, yet I think he’s easily accessible in today’s naming climate.
