Ugh. Kurtis and Kimberly? I dunno, they both sound really really nerdy to me. I guess nicknames would be Kurt, Kim, Beryl, Lee...

I love these names. I prefer the Curtis spelling, and Kimberly has always been a favorite of mine!! Curt is a possible nickname, but I personally don't like it. If I insisted ona nickname for Curtis, I would use C.J. and have a middle name begin with a J. Kim, Kimmy, Lee, Kimber, are all nice nns for Kimberly.

Sorry -- I've never liked Kimberly. I grew up with an obnoxious Kimberly, and religiously watched Full House as a kid (Kimmy Gibbler, anyone?) I know a girl named Kimby, which is sort of cute -- but a little ditzy sounding.

Kurtis. Not my style.

I love Kimberly! It's my aunt's and best friend's name. Kim and Kimmy are the obviously. I love Kimber, so that's what I call my friend. Her mom calls her Kibby, and I guess Kimby works too! My mom is ten years older than my aunt, so when my parents were dating (they were teenagers, which left my aunt at about 6 or 7), my dad always called her Berly to annoy her. And still does to this day! Haha.

I don't like Kurtis. Not even the correct spelling, Curtis.

  • Interests:I LOVE reading. I'm into almost every genre and generally read a book a week, if possible. I like Iris Johansen, Karen Marie Moning, Stephen King, James Patterson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Diana Gabaldon, Kathy Reichs, and Robert Burns (every Scot's favorite author). I really love music and even got accepted to the Mason Gross School of Performing Arts at Rutgers University (my alma mater) for vocal performance. Unfortunately performance life was not for me, so I went into English Lit and French instead. Music is still a big part of my life, and I like a multitude of musical genres from Reggae to Rock to Opera. I've seen Carmen and La bohème each twice. (And I cry every time.) My husband and I also have a special place in our hearts for The Beatles.

I like both Kimberly and Kurtis. I have a cousin named Kurtis, nn Kurt. Kimberly is lovely and the nns Kim/Kimmie/Kimber are all nice.

Ewwww... both names are dated and awful. Sorry, but I really don't like them.

My alternatives would be Karson and Kamora
