1. Probabilities of forming the combinations of letters in the word "Ram" or "Rama" are 1/26 x 1/26 x 1/26 or 1/26 x 1/26 x 1/26 x 1/26.
2. Sound of "Ram" and its variations, are also very rare combinations, like a piece of Music is. So some combination of beats, pitches, and rhythms when pirated from one musical or song piece to another musical or song piece, one can still find the "copying", specially when one is trained in the field of music.
3. To see the similarity in sounds, one needs to be trained to speak and listen in that "accent". So a person from Central Uttar Pradesh, speaking its version of Hindi, in India, if not used to listening to the Eastern Uttar Pradesh version of Hindi, would find that language a different language from his, when it is heard for the first time. Or like Indian English speaking person watching an American or Australian movie for the first time, and not being able to comprehend - though it is still English - would assume the movie in a foreign language!
4. Only when reading a language-script with some phonetic based sounds, can someone find the similarities in two different versions of the same language, which over time and space, evolves into two different languages. So when reading English without being trained in a classical Language like Sanskrit, one will accept things as they are, at the face value of it, but when reading the words again after one being trained in Sanskrit, or Classical Greece, one would appreciate better the origin of the sounds in English words and the grammar rules in the English language.
5. People name themselves and places based on legendary figures, like Christ, Mohammad, and Ram.
6. Recorded History of the Mankind is since 500BC, and there has been many past civilizations which existed and rose to the same level of advancements, if not more than us, as today's civilization's, but later got destroyed. Like there are unexplained things mentioned in the book "Unexplained Archeology".
Some of the stories and artifacts that could not be explained by contemporary history are: (1) the story of Atlantis and Troy, before the later was discovered, (2) unexplained scientific map of Antarctica, which shows the continent before the ice-age, with exact shore lines and rivers, as confirmed by modern scientific instruments, but such knowledge of mapping and charting has come to the modern civilization only in the last 300 to 500 years, and the instruments to peer under the surface, have only come to existence in last 100 years, such as Sonar, Radar, Thermal Imaging, Infra Red Imaging, etc., (3) an Ancient 3-D Map of the World itched on a ancient metal plate artifact, which needs Laser like accuracy and Hologram Technology, (4) Crystal Skulls which can not be even produced today by the modern Laser, (5) some giant boulders, like in Jupiter's temple, in Stonehenge, Egypt,, and other places, which still can not be lifted or even cut with the aid of modern technology, (6) unexplained "green glass crystals" - as found in New Mexico Alamos Nuclear Sites - and radio-active skeleton at Harappa (7) a crystallized human skeleton found in North Eastern Indian Cave, which can only happen when subjected to extreme temperatures which happens after a nuclear blasts, and the list goes on.

Before I sound crazy to the skeptics, here is what others have said, so what I say does not sound ridiculous.
Sir William Jones wrote, ".. of this cursory observation on the Hindus which it would require volumes to expand and illustrate this is the result that they had an immemorial affinity with old Persians, Ethiopians, and Egyptians, Phoenicians, Greeks and Tuscans, the Scythians or Goth and Cilts, the Chinese, Japanese and Peruvians." He said, "It is very remarkable that Peruvians, whose Incas boasted of the same descent, styled their greatest festival Rama-Sitva; whence we may take it that South America was peopled by the same race who imported into the farthest of parts of Asia the rites and the fabulous history of Rama." (source: Asiatic Researches Volume I. p. 426.
William Durant, American historian, said, "India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages; she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all".
Mark Twain, American author, said, "India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only."
Albert Einstein, American scientist, said, "We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made."
Different inflextions or corruptions of the word Ram: (1) Ramah, (2) Ramaan, (3) Raman, (4) Rama, (5) Ramana, (6) Rami, (7) Ram-esh, (8) Ram-isi-is, (9) Ram-esy-is, (10) Ram-es-es, (1) Rham (when R is made soft), (11) Rahmaan, (transliteration modification ofi build in sound of "a" in letters to explicit letters indicating sound "a", like Ram and Rama, Krishn, Krishna, etc), and so on. Like the root "Aatam", becoming "Aatamaa", "Ataman", "Atmanam", "Atmaanam", and so on in a noun declensions, we see the above words, are related, specially, Rama, Raman, and Ramanan.
Ram is suppose to mean one who is in perfect bliss, enjoyment or harmony, or the one who is the epitome of mercy. That is why in the urdu the world "Raham" means "mercy" and "Rahmaan" means "benevolent".
One can see the corruption of "a" and "o" also going on, so Ramanan becomes Romanan and becoming Roman, and Ram becoming Rom, and so on. With fact that Italians are nothing but a branch of Indo Europeans, this is not surprising.
Shiva is part of Male Principle and associated with Bull Worship, which is associated with the Zodiac of Taurus, which is now the month of May. We know that the Ancients celebrated their Father Principle Worship, in the month of May, and did Bull Sacrifice. Because of precession of the Earth, which was 1 degree per 72 years, the Summer Solstice shifted to the month of April, which is the Zodiac of Aries, which is depicted with the picture of Sheep or Lamb, or Ram. So the ancients shifted this festival to the month of April and started sacrificing Ram as that part of the worship. Even Ram is considered as a Solar or Father Principle, following the Shiva worship, which was very ancient and spread all over the world.
Now the Summer Solistice is in the month of June, that means the Earth Recession Periods of 10 months have gone since the Summer Solistice was in the Zodiac of April. So it means that from the time of the April Festival, 10 x 360 x 72 /12 = 21600 years! Now there is some disagreements in terms of taking Yuga as 4320 or 4320,000 years. If one takes the unit of 4320, and adds 1x for Kali Yuga, 2x for Treta Yuga, 3x for Dwarpa Yuga, one comes to 25, 920 years! Now the legend of Ram says, that he was born in Dwarpa Yuga, which comes close.
Ramnavami or the birthday of Lord Rama falls on the 9th day of the bright fortnight of the month of Chaitra (March-April). This is a strange co-incidence, knowing that the English and Hindu Samvat Calenders have some differences, and from time to time, some fudging has gone on to adjust the days.
So is it OK to assume the word for "Ram" for the Zodiac animal sign of the month of April, and the word for Lord Ram, are connected? You decide.
