Abram in Hitchcock's Bible Names high father

Abram in Smiths Bible Dictionary (a high father), the earlier name of Abraham.

Abram in Wikipedia Abraham's name first appears as Abram (Hebrew: אַבְרָם‎, Standard Avram, Tiberian ʾAḇrām), meaning either "exalted father" or "my father is exalted" (compare Abiram) or "the father is exalted". Later in Genesis God renamed him Abraham, a name which the text glosses as av hamon (goyim) "father of many (nations)";[10] however, the name does not have any literal meaning in Hebrew.[11] Many interpretations based on modern textual and linguistic analysis have been offered, including an analysis of a first element abr- "chief", which yields a meaningless second element, however. Johann Friedrich Karl Keil suggests there was once a word raham (רָהָם) in Hebrew, meaning "multitude", on analogy with the word ruh‚m which has this meaning in Arabic, but no evidence that this word existed has been found;[12] and David Rohl suggests the name comes from Akkadian "the father loves."[13]...
