is that the actual text or are you trying to spell it out phonetically?
if you're typing out what you hear, it could possibly be "My name's Kim Ly"

I'm Vietnamese. Too bad I'm terrible at the language. I would need to get my dad or mom.

Without punctuations on the top of the words, it could mean a bunch of things. Since you said it was found in a book, it most likely means:

"To Ly Kim"

The direct translation would be:

Tang(Gift To) Co(title for a woman older than you) Kim(last name) Ly(first name).

Tang(Gift To) Co(title for a woman older than you) Kim(last name) Ly(first name).

It probably mean "A gift to Miss Kim Ly"
Real hard to understand Vietnamese without the accent marks.
Even with them, I'm real bad with reading or writing Vietnamese...hell I'm bad at speaking Vietnamese.
