Meaning and etymology of the name Ahiram
The only Ahiram of the Bible is a son of Benjamin as mentioned in Numbers 26:38. The genealogy of Benjamin as recorded in Genesis 46:21 doesn't mention Ahiram and it has been proposed that Ahiram is the same as either Ehi or Aharah.
The name Ahiram consists of two elements:
1) The word (ah), meaning brother or close associate. The letter yod turns it possessive: my brother, or brother of.
For a meaning of the name Ahiram, Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names proposes Brother Of Height. BDB Theological Dictionary reads Brother Of (The) Lofty. NOBS Study Bible Name List appears to omit this name.
