(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)"; however, the name does not have any literal
meaning in Hebrew. 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; and David Rohl suggests the name comes
from Akkadian "the father loves."...
