Comments for KIMBERLEY:

This is the name I will pick when I have a daughter. It's a beautiful name. Famous Kimberleys are: Kimberley Davies (actress), Kimberley Appleton (singer, Mel & Kim), Kim Metcalf (actress) just to name a few. However I am not keen on the shortened version of Kim.

Kimberley is the name of an area in South Africa where diamonds are mined. The rock diamonds come from is called Kimberlite, and is named for this place. This is my older sister's name also. She was named this because of the name's connection with diamonds. I rather like the name and it suits my sister well. I like it much better than my name (Amanda) or my other sister's name (Robyn). This spelling is also prettier than the traditional Kimberly.

Kimberley is also a village in Nottinghamshire in England, with a mention in the Domesday Book, and another village in Norfolk. The ten places called Kimberly in the US might account for that spelling being more common in the States.

I'll never be quite sure why; but I vastly prefer Kimberley to Kimberly. Kimberly looks far too... plain for me, perhaps. Kimberley comes easier to me.

My name is Kimberley and I really like it and I think it's a shame you do not hear names like this one anymore. I think Kimberley is one of those names that can suit a child, teen or an adult and it sounds feminine and elegant too.

My name is a variation on this, but spelt Kymberley to honor my grandmother Kym. It's a pretty rare spelling, and I'm always correcting people with the y, but most include the e, which was actually put in by my Dad, because he didn't like Kymberly. Kim is pretty common in Australia (it's my best friend's name!), but there aren't many Kimberleys. I've met one other Kimberley, who was three years below me in school, but none spelt Kymberley.

I love my name. It's unique without being weird (Kimberleigh, I think not!) and it ages well. I won't be ashamed in my old age as I would be with Tiffany or Ashley (no offence to anyone out there). My friend goes by Kimmy, but I've always hated that nickname, so Kym or Kymberley in public and I get Kymber at home.

The Kimberley is also a beautiful region in Northern Australia which I've had the privilege to visit. Like my name, it is unique and a beautiful part of the country. Seriously, go there and you won't be sorry :)

My name is Kimberley, I was named after a second world war destroyer the HMS Kimberley. Most people call me Kim. Kimmy is another one people try to call me but I detest it. As my middle name is Anne my close family also call me Kimbo-anna or just Kimbo.
