I have a close friend who has a daughter named Kimber. He named her that after his love of the Kimber guns. I actually think it's really pretty! But, she is a gorgeous little girl so I may be doing a person association with the name :)

To me it does feel like it was just chopped in half, but Briella is a "cut up" version of Gabriella and I love that. I think I just prefer how feminine Kimberly feels, where standalone Kimber has a masculine effect to it.

It's not just a nickname for Kimberly, though it does make a nice one. It actually predates Kimberly.

Other forms are Kimbree, Kimbre, Cymbre, Kinbarra, Kinborow, and more. This name comes from St. Kyneburgh, who was an Anglo-Saxon princess.

Kimber was a girl's name before Kimberly was. It's from an Anglo-Saxon saint and princess, St. Kyneburgha. There is a church named for her in England. If you don't like the way Kimber rhymes with "timber" consider the other forms: Kinbarra, Kinborrow, Kimbra, Kimbro, Kimbre/Cymbre. This website gives over 100 forms of the name and an interesting history: http://www.kinbarra.net/spe... Also, Namberry has Kinborow on its list of names from Tudor England.

I used to babysit for a girl named Kimber whose middle name was Lee (or possibly Leigh), but that's one option, like a classmate I had whose mother wanted to name her Kasey, but her father insisted on something more serious, so they named her Katherine Charlotte and called her K.C.

I have a very strong urge to add 'ly' to the end of this name.

I hate these names which are just another name with a bit missing.
