There is no issue with using the name Arham. Even the name Muhammad means "most praiseworthy" and there is no issue with using it. Allah uses some of His own names to describe humans, for example Raoof (sympathetic) and Raheem (very merciful) when describing Prophet Muhammad and Haleem (very forbearing) when describing Prophet Ibraheem.
The only problem is if you put "al-" in front of the name, such as Al-Raheem, then it becomes unacceptable for humans.
