My name is Kymber-Lee my mom wanted to be differant but I did have some problems in school w/ people saying an spelling it wrong. lol There was atleast two girls in my class that also had the same name in some shape or another so I spent most of school going by Kymber which then I didnt like. I started going by Kym in 7th grade but when I got to high school there was three girls that was in my lil group of friends so they dubbed me Kymi an I still go by it today an Im 27 lol

I love my name and I think that is fits my personality. I was suppose to be 'Jessica' b/c my dad's name is Jessie but my mom said it jumped out at her one day. I do get VERY annoyed when people automatically shorten it and call me something else plus the fact that there is almost always another Kimberly around.....but I like it just the way it is. Kimberly Elise....When I have a daughter I want her name to begin with a 'K'...I am leaning towards Kailyn :-)

2/4/2023 6:35:46 PM

My name is Kimberly and I <3 it I love all the nick names my mom n dad call me Kimberly **boring** My friends call me Kim or KI'my in a squeaky voice and my cousins call me Kimby its so cute I love my name I'm planning on naming my futre child (10 yrs from now) after me!

2/1/2023 10:04:14 AM

i never was to fond of my name but its not spelled the usual way other kims spell it. my mom and her sister spell there names with an i [TRACI AND KELLI] so my mom decided to spell mine Kimberli :) it seems that alot of the kims i know have the middle name Anne, which i have also! Kimberli Anne Marie :)

12/3/2022 8:35:42 PM

My name is Kimberly Ann. Yes, just like Kim Possible and the pink Power Ranger... I have the usual nicknames, Kim and KI'my. My parents call me Kimberlies or Kiki, neither of which I like. My brothe's LOVE to call me Chim Chim. I always wished I had a feminine name--one that ended in an "a" or an "e". Especially when I started high school and people called me Kim Jong Un, Kim Kardashian, and Kimberly-Clark. I wish my parents had had the foresight not to name their only daughter after a company that produces toilet paper and diapers. It'sounds fine with my middle name but, again, I lament not having a more feminine middle name (at least to balance out my first name). I'mean, Ann without an "e"? Also everyone thinks I'm a Valley Girl! Not a good name 0/10 would not recommend.

My sister is Kim or Kimberly. My mother was trying to think of a good name and saw the Kimberly-Clark label on the'side of one of their products in a store and it hit her at that moment. I think we're all glad that'she didn't go with 'Clark' instead. My sister is 3 years younger and I used to make her mad when we were little kids by calling her 'Kimbo Bimbo'. I don't call her that now of course. We love Kim and Kimberly as names and greatly because we love my sister as she has made the name even more special than it already was.

11/19/2022 3:41:02 PM

its is a little boring, but you can get a million different names out of it. my friends call me: kim, kI'my, tI'my, and some other names. its funny how cool it is to have this name. but i like namaes that are different better... i want to name my 1st child Maureen (like 17 years from now)... i think that name is awesome.. BYE!! <3

11/18/2022 12:00:32 AM

it is acttionly Kimberley my friends call me Kim

11/2/2022 7:52:50 PM

I love my name and it is spelled with and "ie" on the end. I don't see that on your list of spellings, that must make it very unique - Kimberlie. I went by Kim until I was 27, then started going by Kimberlie; I like the full name better and I don't meet very many Kimberly(s)these days. Although, in high school (1998 grad.) there were a lot of us, but after looking a the chart, that would make sense!

9/23/2022 12:38:34 AM

this name reminds me of zac efron since its his real name

9/11/2022 3:54:50 PM

well my name is krista and i live in canada. my mom was going to name is victoria but i didnt look like a victoria. i guess i like this names its pretty good. but only people off the rez know me as krista the rest know me as moo moo. or my grandparents call me jijeyehta(thats my indian name) but when people say my name its kindof awesome because its not the'same as everyone i know where some have the'same name.

9/11/2022 12:40:52 PM

I was born in the 80s and there a many Kimberly's around my age. In my graduating class there were 7 or 8 Kimberlys out of 600 kids. Overall I like my name.

8/29/2022 9:41:42 AM

I love the name Kimberly. i've been called, KI'my and Kim but have always preferred the complete name, Kimberly. It's classy, and flows beautifully.

8/5/2022 4:33:54 PM

My name is Kimberly and I love it! So many fun nicknames come from it..Kimbo, Kimber, KI'mer, Kimbolina, etc. I just hate when people call me Kim, boring!

6/12/2022 4:55:30 PM

I love the name though my mom thought she was naming me something different as she'd not heard it much (60's) but when I started school, there were 6 of us in a class of 20. Yikes! I prefer Kimberly over Kim and am not much into the various nicknames.

5/28/2022 4:31:12 AM

Kimberley, born in 1971...grandma gave my mom trouble, said she had never heard of it before. I am okay with Kim or Kimberley, I find it funny when I say my name as Kimberley, and people says nice to meet you Kim. Beautiful name, Kim or Kimberley, I am pleased, good name for me.

5/6/2022 9:57:00 PM

Yes, I am a Galen and have always been proud of my name. I have only known two other's named Galen all spelled the'same. It'seems odd to me that 9 out of 10 times that'someone spells my name they add a y and sometimes d at the end. Never the less It's a name that catches peoples attention. I feel stren'th in the name Galen and am comfortable being a silent helper.

4/29/2022 8:40:30 PM

I love my name Kimberly Dawn. I will not respond to Kim. It is not my name. I always introduce myself as Kimberly, and my friends and co workers defend my full name to new people. I apparently give people the look of death when'they call me Kim.

3/31/2022 1:02:24 PM

My sisters name is Kim and I can get so many nick names out of it. When she was little we used to call her 'Kimberly Wimberly' I don't know why? I call her KI'my, Kimbo, KI'my WI'my.. and other ones that I can't even'think of right now haah

3/30/2022 10:24:00 PM

My name is Kimberly, pretty but very common. Most people just call me Kim, but some call me KI'mie which I like a lot better.

2/17/2022 10:46:30 PM

In the 1996 Japanese TV show 'Chodenshi BI'man' (Super Electron BI'man), the character Miss Hikaru Katsuragi aka Pink Five is called Kimberly in the English-dubbed version of it, and that is WAY before Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, featuring the Kimberly WE are all familiar with.

2/12/2022 11:00:54 AM

My name is Kimberly. I think that It's a pretty name, a little common and boring, but still pretty. The only major downside to this name is being called "Kim" all of the time. I hate that!

12/1/2021 3:21:54 PM

I just had twins last week and I named them Kaci Noel and Kimberly Chase and i call them Kaci and Kimi for short and I have always loved the name Kimberly

9/23/2021 4:14:06 AM

I love my name, although it very common. It only annoys me when some asks, "What do you like to be called, Kimberly or Kim?" I guess they're just being polite, but I really don't care either way!

9/1/2021 8:51:18 AM

Even'though one of the Power Rangers-like programs of the early Eighties - Chodenshi BI'man, of course - featured a Kimberly, or rather Hikaru Katsuragi who was Pink Five of that team (Kimberly was only her name in the English dub aired in the Philippines), the only Super'sentai counterpart that Kimberly the Pink Power Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers had had was Risha Tribe Princess Mei aka the PteraRanger of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger. Trini's counterpart, on the other hand, was a male, and was by a funny coincidence named Boi (but there WERE female yellow rangers in Super'sentai even before Zyuranger, like the'second Yellow Four June Yabuki of BI'man and her much more tragic predecessor Mika Koizumi - known as Casey in the English dub of BI'man), and this was why the Pink Ranger costume had a skirt whereas the Yellow Ranger costume did not, even when Aisha took Trini's place as the Yellow Ranger when'trini, along with original Red Ranger Jason and original Black Ranger Zack (their own Zyuranger counterparts are Geki and Goushi respectively), left during the 'Power Transfer' episodes for Switzerland (and this was seven years before Thuy Trang, Trini's actress, met her tragic end in a car crash in California - taking some BI'man fans back to the time when Mika or Casey, the original Yellow Four, died as a result of the anti-bio particle blasts in episode 10 of BI'man). Let's not find ourselves too surprised about Trini's Zyuranger counterpart being male, however. There was, after all, the Dynaman spoof on Night Flight that preceded Power Rangers (and the Dynaman character Kousaku Nangou/DynaYellow - 'Cowboy' in the'spoof - was male).

I love my name too :D I've only met one who has the name kimberly.. I live in Sweden so it's quite unique here XD My full name is May Kimberly Ann and I just looove it :) The thing with the name Kimberly is that you can have many diffrent nicknames...My friends call me Kimba, Kimbo, Berry, Kimber, Kim, Kimily, Kimzie, Kimkimz...and it goes on forever :) haha It was my aunt who came up with the name for me and I just want to say to her thank youuuu!!!! :D

8/9/2021 10:56:24 AM

My name's okay. I'm not a big fan of it. I only have one nickname: Kim, and that's what i've been called my whole life. I just recently wanted to get out of it, and I'm trying to get everyone to call me Kimber, which I adore...I adore, "Kimber." Everyone pronounces it correctly but strange enough, a lot of people spell it Kimberley instead of Kimberly. I prefer Kimber, then Kimberly, then Kim. I don't really like Kim at all. i've actually met quite a few people with the name, "Kimberly".
