I just named my new born daughter Kimber Gisele well my aunt gave her that name. When I told my friend what I was naming her she thought that it was an ugly name but not me I loved the name and thought it was so different because I never met a Kimber and her name fits her well. I must say I'm in love with her and her name they both are gorgeous
- Personal experiences with the name Kimber: | Edit
My name is Kimber. I like the name Kimber because I so far have never met anyone with the same name. I got my name from my aunts MIDDLE name. One thing that annoys me about my name is that everytime someone first meets me and finds out my name they ask me if it is short for kimberly. Sometimes when people i just met forget my name, they call me kim or kimberly and i dont like the name kimberly honestly because so many people always try and call me that. But i love it because it is unique
I like this name much more than Kimberly, which is my own name. I like Kimber and Kimberra much more.
