The name Kimberley has its origins in Old English and is derived from the combination of "cyne" meaning "royal" and "burh" meaning "fortress". The name is primarily used as a girl's name but can also be used for boys. The meaning of Kimberley is "from the wood of the royal forest" or "from the royal fortress meadow". The name Kimberley gained popularity in the 19th century when Lord Kimberley of Norfolk, England, named a town in South Africa and a region in Australia after himself. The name's origin is also connected to the place name Kimberley in Norfolk, England, which is derived from two Old English elements: "Cyneburg," a feminine personal name meaning "royal fortress," and "lēah," meaning "woodland" or "clearing".
