    This Kimberley is though to be derived from kimberlite, a kind of peridotite rock which contains diamonds. Others think it to be derived from Lord Kimberley, whose name is believed to be a compound name composed of an Old English personal name of unknown meaning and lēah (wood, clearing, meadow, enclosure). The name Zena is a Greek baby name. In Greek the meaning of the name Zena is: Born of Zeus. Also a welcoming; hospitable; friendly. Holding thumbs and toes ? ?

    The name Zielé means:Cheerful, bright you’re a person of action and communication. That is why I need to exchange, discover and learn together with others. The name ziele says im curious by nature and that I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge that often makes me push the limits and go to unknown horizons. My names say that I designing my daily life with a little fantasy and I am particularly creative and intuitive. When I red this a few years ago, I agreed completely.. my mom said that she found the name in a restaurant menu, on a paper just laying there, and fell inlove with it. I want to have this ring because my mom’s best friend is not very welthy, and she has been over fantasizing about it for months!

  99. Lizaan Avatar

    our first name of Lizaan has given you a friendly, likeable nature, and you could excel in artistic, dramatic, and musical expression.

    With this name, you desire the finer things in life, but you do not always have the resolve and vitality to put forth the effort necessary to fulfill your desires.

    Your emotional feelings are easily aroused and you will always be involved in other people’s problems as a result of your overly sympathetic nature.
