  1. Ooh, what a fun and unusual sound. I love Tasneem/Tasnim and Miriam/Maryam, and like Ahlam, Reem, Nilam, Blossom, Charm, and Harlem.

    A few more I can think of:

    Nicknames like Sam, Tam, and Em/Emme.
    Arabic names like Tabassum and Zamzam (love both of these so much).
    Word/place names like Elm, Poem, and Rome.
