I am trying to ascertain if the name "Rami" is a Jewish one.
If rabbis in the Babylonian Talmud are named Rami then that would be a good indication.
There are at least 3 Ramis found in the gemarah:
- Rami Bar Hamma (Brachos 44a, among many others)
- Rami Bar Papa (Yoma 77b, Bava Basra 100b, and also in the Hadran for finishing a tractate of Talmud)
- Rami Bar Avin (Shabbos 20b)
Is this Rami the full name of these Amoraim or is it a shorthand for something else?
