Help with choosing an ethnic baby name Rss

Hi all, we have chosen the name 'Golam' for our son which comes from our culture. Before finalising the name I just want to find out if it resembles anything bad, offensive or ridiculous in western cultures? The thought came to my mind that he might get picked on at school as it sounds like 'Golem'.

Your input is much appreciated. Thanks.
Hi... As you've already pointed out it sounds like golem. I personally would never use a name no matter how much I liked it if it's likely to lead to my child being teased at school and unfortunately I think that is the case with this name. Sorry.
