- Personal experiences with the name Cheyenne: | Edit
sometimes, people ask me if I'm part of the Indian tribe, Cheyenne, and I think that's really cool because I am part Native American but not the Cheyenne part. I also have been asked if I lived in Cheyenne,Wyoming, but I don't. I spell my name differently then most Cheyennes so people say my name is also unique ~Sheyenne~
