"My name is Kami. It's not short for anything, it's not commie or Kamie (like Amy) it's Kami. I usually say it rhymes with Tammy only with a K. I didn't like my name growing up because I always had to explain it or correct people. Now I love it because it's unique and most say it's pretty. I am named after Kami Cottler from the Waltons."

"No one has ever spelled it right and some have mispronounced it. Some people think it must be short for Cameron or Camilla. No, it starts with a "K" and it's not short for anything. I've always hated it and felt it didn't suit me. Going to change it as soon as possible." Nov. 21, 2017:

"I don?t absolutely hate my name however, it?s tiring trying to explain to everyon the my name is not short for anything. It?s not Cameron or Camilla. My name is Kami with a ?k? not a ?C? and it?s not kimmy either." Jul. 20, 2019:
"Im 44 years old and my name is Kami. As mentioned previously by a few- people upon introduction typically call me "Tammy." I also get asked frequently if my name is short for Camilla or Cameron. I was also named after Kami Cotler from the TV show The Waltons. My Mom got it from the TV guide lol. When I was young- I didn't like my name...it was different. Not many children like the idea of being different at the ages when you just want to fit in. I also could never find anything monogrammed with my name...pens, keychains, mugs etc lol. As I got older and had my own kids I developed an appreciation for the name and where it came from. I like that it's original...and even after all these years- still original! I've only met 2 other people named Kami in my life so far. I wouldn't change it." Jul. 2, 2019:
