I've found examples of use, but "lusty rogue" seems a stretch (perhaps it just means "scoundrel"?), and "naked man" is wholly unattested. — Beobach 23:18, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

The "lusty rogue" sense may just be a flowery 1811 way of saying "scoundrel", the attested sense. It is interesting that I cannot find support for the "naked man" sense, though, given that "abram" is (above) supposed to mean "naked". — Beobach 20:08, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
I have removed the two unattested senses as RFV-failed. — Beobach 22:17, 4 January 2011 (UTC)
