Abraham's name first appears as Abram (Hebrew: אַבְרָם, Modern Avram Tiberian ʾAḇrām), meaning either "exalted father" or "my father is exalted" (compare Abiram). Later in Genesis God renamed him Abraham; the text glosses this as av hamon (goyim), "father of many (nations)", but it does not have any literal meaning in Hebrew. Many modern interpretations based on textual and linguistic explanations have been offered, including an analysis of a first element abr- "chief", but this yields a meaningless second element. Johann Friedrich Karl Keil suggests there was once a word raham (רָהָם) in Hebrew, meaning "multitude", on analogy with the word ruhâm which has this meaning in Arabic, but no evidence that this word existed has been found; and David Rohl suggests the name comes from Akkadian "the father loves.

Yes I've always thought the energy points in the Kaballah (sp) and the Hindu Chakra point similarities were quite interesting.
Now, is it coincidence that in Indias Caste system, the highest class are the Brahmins? Brahmin and Abraham, are etymologically very close. Is it possible that they are the descendants of Abrahams 2nd wife, Keturah?

Abraham was from mesopotamia. He sent his wife and kids to the East - East of mesopotamia, which can be interpreted as the indus valley.
Meaning the brahmins themselves derived their knowledge from the middleeast.
