I have the name Kim (short for Kimberley) and I’ve honestly felt very unique with it. It’s right up there with Ted, Bob, Jill, etc. Nothing remarkable sounding about it at all. But I did always like the meaning behind it: “from the wood of the royal fortress.” Makes it sound powerful, therefore, I am powerful. I despise that nowadays it is associated with Kim Kardashian more than anything.

Other than the fact that it rhymes with Tim and Jim, there is not really anything masculine about this name.

Kim Petras is a German pop and a cappella singer-songwriter. She has been the subject of international news interest, having undergone gender transition at an early age. Kim Petras was born Tim Petras on 27 August 1992. Her parents, Lutz and Konni, have said that from the age of two, she began insisting she was a girl. It became apparent this was "not just a phase," and her parents tried to be supportive but made her wear gender neutral clothes in public. Eventually her parents sought professional help but struggled to find people who were knowledgeable on the subject. In time they found Bernd Meyenburg at Frankfurt University who was head of a clinic for children and had studied transsexuality since the 1970s.

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.

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.

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]

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".

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.
