How about a Friday Five…
1. Is the name you have now the same name that’s on your birth certificate? If not, what’s changed?
Well, it says “Kimberly Marie Johnson” and technically I’m a “Kim Marie Thornton” now… so, nickname first name and married last name.
2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be?
I used to dream of having the middle name “Feyd” from Feyd Rautha in the Dune series, even though it’s a guys name, I just loved it. Used to dream of “Kimberly Feyd Johnson”… and well, along with dreams of how to assassinate Valerie Bertineli, frequently dreamt of “Kimberly Feyd Van Halen” as the perfect name. Could even picture my corvette with the vanity plate “KFVH”.
3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?) Mom named me totally. Gave me the middle name she wanted for herself (she was a Blanche). Mom tells me that my sister wanted me to be named after her (middle name Ann), but that didn’t happen thankfully — not that I don’t think that’s a cool name, just that I attended grade school, K-12, with a “Kimberly Ann Johnson” and developed a habit of going by “Kim M.” to distinguish myself.
4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?
I think I’m biased. I really like the names “Joyce” and “Angela”, who just happen to be relatives of mine, but I really do like those names. I could have lived with either of those names. I like mine, though. For guys, I like the typical stuff… James, Michael.. etc. Names I don’t like… usually nicknames of names I do like.. for instance.. LOVE Angela, hate Angie. LOVE Michael, hate Mike. Strange I don’t mind Kim for Kimberly. Always hated “Kimber” though.
5. Is the analysis of your name at kabalarians.com accurate? How or how isn’t it?
Your name of Kim contains many fine qualities: musical and artistic ability, good business judgment, and a sense of responsibility for the welfare of others. This makes you warm-hearted and understanding in your response to the needs and interests of those around you. You are always ready to help those in less fortunate circumstances. Your insistence on becoming involved in the affairs of others can cause them to regard you as interfering, even though you are only trying to help. A weakness lies in the fact that you are deeply affected through your feeling for others and could suffer through worry and disturbed thoughts over matters that you can do nothing about. While you have an appreciation for the finer things of life and could be successful along inspirational as well as business or professional lines of endeavor, there is a tendency to become involved in the needs and interests of others to the detriment of your own progress. Home and family are important to you and you desire to establish a settled home environment where you can enjoy the congenial companionship of friends and family.
I’d say that’s a fairly good picture of me.
The name Kimberly gives you a strongly independent and highly creative nature, with drive and ambition to have experiences and accomplish things out of the ordinary. You can work intently at whatever is new and holds your interest at the moment, but your interest wanes quickly when drudgery and monotony set in. Obstacles to your progress or restrictions on your freedom to act create a sense of frustration which may cause you to feel resentful and even rebellious. You can then become intolerant of others, and caustic and belittling in your expression, thereby imposing stress on your personal relationships. Although you have a clever, quick, capable mind, your progress in life is restricted by instability in your affairs and misunderstandings with people. Your impulsive nature can lead to actions which you later regret taking, or to accidents. Relaxation is elusive, and depletion due to nervous tension can develop to the point where you become subject to moods of depression and morbid thoughts.
Eeek! Um.. i think the people at kabalarians need to get out of my head.
ps. it’s after 3 and I’m STILL waiting on permissions to be fixed. How to waste more time…..
