I've never liked this nickname, and I don't like the name Kimberly either. As for now, I associate this name with the ex-wife of that moron, Eminem, and the awesome track Kim & Jessie by M83 hasn't made the name sound any prettier or more sophisticated to me.

This name was also used in Russia by Soviet parents after the October Revolution. In that case, Kim was not short for Kimberly, it was an acronym of "Kommunistichesky International Molodyozhi", meaning "Youth Communist International".

In the 1936 version of the movie Showboat, a baby born on the Mississippi is named Kim after the K in Kentucky, the I in Illinois and the M in Missouri. Curiously, the name Kim first appears on the popularity graph on this site at exactly the same time as this movie's release. [noted -ed]

Another famous Kim was American actress Kim Stanley (1925-2001). As was the case with Kims Hunter and Novak, the name was assumed. (She was born Patricia Beth Reid.)

I'm put off this name as in Turkish, Kim means 'who'. So if you went to Turkey and said your name was Kim they'd burst out laughing.

Never liked this name. For one thing, it's a very common word in Asia and the most common surname in Korea. It always seemed very boring to me. The only good thing is that Kim is very easy to spell and pronounce.

In my neck of the woods, (the US south) it's typically pronounced Key-um. Try as I might, I can't say it any other way to save my life.

This is my name. Not Kimberly. I'm not the hugest fans of Kim, I dislike Kimberly a lot more. Kim is OK.
