Kim Genealogy & History

Kim is a Korean and Scottish name, though the vast majority of bearers are Korean. It comes from the Korean word for gold, usually transliterated into the Roman alphabet as kim, and is very popular in Korea: 21% of ethnic Koreans have Kim as their family name. In Scotland's case, it comes from the patronymic form of Simon or Sim: Mac Shim or Shimidh. Kim family history in America starts with John Kim sailing to New York in 1812. Kim genealogy includes Dartmouth President Jim Yong Kim, Pulitzer-winning reporter John J. Kim, and the ruling Kim family of North Korea.
