Kimberley is a female name.
The given name Kimberley derived from the name of the South African city Kimberley, that was named after the English Lord Kimberley (1826-1902). Besides, Kimberley is a feminine variant transcription of the masculine name Kimball.
The name Kimberley is a combination of the name Cyneburg and the Old English word “lēah”. Cyneburg means “royal fortress” (from Old English “cyne” = royal + “burg” = fortress) and “lēah” means “woodland” or “clearing”. Thus, Kimberley means “of the woodland clearing of the royal fortress.” Deriving from Kimball, Kimberly means “bold king” or “warrior chief”.
