If XIRAM is a word, and I am usually against seeing a proper name as  
a word,
of the root XRM, 'tall and massive, mighty', as in mount XERMON, then  
the variants of
this name provide an interesting example to the alternate uses of the  
personal pronoun
IY, as in היא HIY; U, as in הוא; and O, as in שלו $EL-O, 'his'.
The purpose of the inserted personal pronouns is to add the  
declaration "he is", to XRM.
