Ram (Hebrew: רם‎) is a figure in the Hebrew Bible. He is the son of Hezron and ancestor of King David.

His genealogical lineage and descendants are recorded in 1 Chr 2:9, and at Ruth 4:19

In the New Testament, his name is given as Aram and Arni.

About him little is known, except that he must have lived when the Israelites were in Egypt.

The male name Ram is currently used in Israel. Among the famous people named Ram are author Ram Oren and architect Ram Karmi. Rahm Emanuel's first name is written (in Hebrew) in the same way, but he was actually named after a man named Rahamim [1].
