"I used to date a guy named "Kim" I think he was born in the 1950's. Very different name for a guy, but somehow it suited him. I wonder if he had a lot of flak about it in school? I like different names, and obviously I have never forgot him or his name." Jan. 2, 2008:

"My name is Kim and I hate it now because the girls have taken it over. When I was a kid in the 60s I knew of 5 other boys with the same name but now I have to show my drivers license because folks don't believe my name is Kim. Banks think I am trying to take some woman's identity when I am cashing a check One way lasting affect for me is that it made me recognize and stand up to bullies quickly. I admire those who go by the name proudly while I hide behind my middle name. I should have changed it long ago." Jan. 22, 2009:

"As it is more often than not a girl's name, I have been socialised to not see it as "truly" masculine (My name is Kim). Also, as I have partial Asian heritage, it is often seen as denoting that, when this is not the case." Dec. 9, 2005:
