My name is Kimber & I personally LOVE it. I have never met someone with the name "Kimber". My name came from my mothers name Kimberly. It makes me feel unique knowing no one in my highschool has my name. My name has made me who i am. It reallly bugs me when people feel the need to call me "Kimberly" or "Kim" my name is Kimber and thats what i like to be called, just like your name is bob & thats what i intend on calling you, Sorry my name is unique unlike yours. It also irritates the crap out of me when people say "yeah, but thats not your real name? It's short for Kimberly right?"
I am a Kimber and I really like my name, but I'll tell you what really used to irritate the crap out of me when I was in school - whenever I walked past this one boy in the hall he would yell "TIM-BERRRRRRR!"
- 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
