Kimberly

An English surname with an original meaning now unknown, but which almost certainly refers to a meadow…or a South African village. Some speculation exists that it is derived from a word referring to a royal meadow camp. Traditionally a boys name, Kimberly is now more popularly used for girls. (Particularly ones that grow up to become Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders. Seriously.)
