  • "I think I see a name is Kimberley Anne and my father also named me. Born in 1973. My only real complaint is it is a common name and most people don't realize that it can be spelled -ley, as mine is." Aug. 11, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kimberly Marie, born in the 70's, and I absolutely love my name and it fits me so well. My favorite nick-name is Kimbo, but everyone calls me Kimmie except my husband. He usually calls me Kimberly or Kimber when he wants to be funny. Embrace the "Kimbo" nick-name Kimberlys. It is not that bad of a nick-name. It is actually kind of funny. The name Kimberly is a very pretty name, even though it is considered common these days." Oct. 23, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "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!" Apr. 11, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I too was named after Kim Novak. I don't mind my name. It is Kimberly Sue. As a kid, most people called me Kim. As an adult a lot of people I work with call me Kimberly. I really don't mind which form people use. I have four sisters, three with K names, so I'm just happy when I'm called a form of my name. My family calls me berlysue a lot. When I was in kindergarten I thought my name was just Kim. One day I got scolded and my mom called me Kimberly Sue. I cried and cried...when she asked what was wrong I told her she would cry too if her middle name was berlysue. So, I thought my name was Kim Berlysue. I definately like Kimberly Sue better:)" Feb. 10, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "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 :-)" Aug. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kimberly and I love it! I think it is such a classy name and to me I look just like a Kimberly. I grew up in a small town in the 1970's and there were no other Kimberly's in my classes until my family moved to the city and I went to a large high school. All of my childhood I went by "Kimmie" or "Kimberly" but never by "Kim". I always liked my name until I started working and everyone shortened it to "Kim". For years it was a major source of annoyance for me when someone would assume I wanted to be called by a nickname. Now that I'm in my mid-thirties I have decided to no longer fight the system with nicknames. These days I introduce myself as "Kimberly" and invite people to call me "Lee". I like it and think it will fit me as I gracefully grow older." Feb. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Daddy named me Kimberly never called me Kimberly but that is what he named me. All my younger cousin's call me Kimmy it would be so strange to hear them say Kim although that is how everyone else addresses me except my mom and aunt who called me Kimbee and my cousin who thought they were saying bean so that stuck too."

  • "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." Apr. 21, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My dad named me Kimberly and it fits. I think it is a pretty, simple, and elegant name. I wouldn't trade it! And I agree with others - I hate being called 'Kim'. My friends called me that growing up but I made them all call me Kimberly once we got into high school. Only one nickname is okay with me and a lady I work with (and only her) calls me that - Kimster." Nov. 30, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "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." Jul. 15, 2007: Report as inappropriate

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.

  • "I was born in ?73 when this was a popular name. My parents named me Kimberly Ann. I think to be cruel... I was called Kimmy, Kim and Kimberly by various family growing up. I HATED my name. There were so many of us in my school, when the teacher would call on Kim, we?d look at each other. In high school, I heard the nickname Kiki and liked it, so that?s what my friends started to call me. But it didn?t stick into adulthood as it was only my friends who called me that. I?m just plain old Kim and I very much dislike it. I?m an artist and have always been unusual. My name doesn?t seem to reflect that. Kimberly just seems too regal and sophisticated a name for me. I?m not that type of person. But I?m stuck with it, unfortunately..." Jan. 29, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Kimberly Ann. Yes, just like Kim Possible and the pink Power Ranger... I have the usual nicknames, Kim and Kimmy. My parents call me Kimberlies or Kiki, neither of which I like. My brothers 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." Apr. 5, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I really hate my name! I always wanted a different name since I was three or four, and back in the early 1990s, when I was in elementary school, whenever there was an Asian-American character in our reading books, HE was named 'Kim' so I was always given the "privilege" of reading those stories out loud. I was already laughed at for not being like the other kids (I've Asperger's Syndrome), and it was awful that everyone started telling me I had a boy's name! I didn't get called by a nickname until school, and I never liked any of them: Kim, Kimbo, Kimmy, Kimber... It seems no one can take the time to use all three syllables, same with names like Samantha or Elizabeth." Jan. 25, 2008: Report as inappropriate

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"." Apr. 20, 2011: Report as inappropriate

I've had a ton of nicknames...mostly when I was small but I do still have an aunt that calls me Kimber and has since the day I was born. Everyone here knows what it's like to be a Kimmy...ick ick ick! I was named by my dad after a mutual friend of his and my moms...the most dreaded nicknames have been kimbo, kimmy, kimmel, kimmy coo-coo (thankyou grandma), I don't so much mind the shortening of the is fine with me. just dont call me kimmy. :p" Mar. 26, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "There was a time when I could never talk about this name without mention Kimberly the Pink Power Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (she was played by Amy Jo Johnson), but nowadays I prefer her Super Sentai counterpart, Risha Tribe Princess Mei/PteraRanger (played by Japanese actress Reiko Chiba), in the 1992 program that spawned MMPR, which is Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (meaning, in English, 'Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers'). Just like I prefer Super Sentai itself to Power Rangers (I, and several other Super Sentai fans, would refer to Power Rangers as "The Fake Sentai")." Aug. 23, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Even though one of the Power Rangers-like programs of the early Eighties - Chodenshi Bioman, 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 Bioman and her much more tragic predecessor Mika Koizumi - known as Casey in the English dub of Bioman), 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 Bioman 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 Bioman). 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)."

  • "In the 1984 Japanese TV show 'Chodenshi Bioman' (Super Electron Bioman), 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." Mar. 16, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "This name reminds me of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV show of the Nineties, where Miss Kimberly Ann Hart (played by Amy Jo Johnson) was the original and perhaps best-known Pink Power Ranger. In my eyes, and even though she did leave the program eventually, she appeared to be an irreplaceable character, just like Trini really, even though I coped quite well with Aisha now being the Yellow Ranger in Trini's place (at least this so-called "racism" with Trini being yellow-skinned, just like the original Black Ranger Zack being an actual black man, came to an end and not least because Aisha was herself black-skinned while second Black Ranger Adam Park is both half-white and half-Korean)."
