I am 35 years old and my name is Kimberly. I like my name enough. I wouldn't stop someone from using it. I find it is a popular name from the years around my birthdate, 1979.
I do like names that have options.
I use Kimberly professionally.
I use Kim when I have to spell my name to someone, over the phone or for appointments.
I was Kim in school. I do like the ease and simplicity with the name. There is never any pronunciation problems.
When I got married I could use the version that sounded best with my married last name.

I never really dictate Kim, Kimberly, Kimmie. I let people use whichever they prefer although, I never introduce myself as Kimmie, I don't mind it because the only people who call me that are family, close friends or children. Auntie Kimmie is a fun name. It's a sign of affection when someone starts calling me Kimmie.
I had a boyfriend once that called me Kimba, just because I hated it. Obviously he didn't stay a boyfriend too long.
Other than that I was never teased about my name. So I do appreciate that.

I think all versions of the name are fine, I don't love my name but I don't hate it either. I do wish there was a better nickname. I think of the name as similar to Jennifer, just slightly less common.
