Is Kim, not Kimberly. In 2nd grade, I naturally assumed that my name was Kimberly and started signing all my papers that way. My mom asked why and told me it wasn't my name. I know from baby books it means "ruler or chief" and I think "Sun" or something. I don't know how my parents came up with it, except I do know my dad wanted to name me Renee, after the song, "Walk Away Renee." My mom thought it would be a name I'd either love or hate. My great-grandmother of old-school German roots told my mom it was a ni**er name. She's probably turning over in her grave to avoid seeing pics of my daughter. It's like when Chris Rock said the person you hate the most will end up in your family. I like my name. I wonder why it was so popular when I was born.
