My name is ILHAM which is pronounced the way it’s spelt. As a kid, I hated my name and did get teased for being a “ham”. But now that I’m an adult, I love the unique-ness and the strength that my name conveys. I definitely have not met another Ilham for sure.
It means inspiration in Arabic, by the way.
