Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Kimora

Kimora appears to be a made-up name, popularized by model/designer turned reality TV star Kimora Lee Simmons. Kimora herself is half Japanese and half African-American. It appears as if her mother simply gave her a Japanese sounding name, but a name without any true etymological roots. For instance, the Japanese personal name Kimiko means “ruling child” or “dear child”. Kimora’s mother may have taken the popular Japanese “Kim” prefix and added the soft-sounding and invented “-ora” suffix. Some people seem to think that Kimora is a Chinese name but we can’t find any supporting evidence.
