Cienna Name Meaning & Origin

Cienna

Pronunciation: see-EH-nə (key)

Sienna is a clay used in pigments. Treated with fire it becomes burnt sienna, a lush reddish-brown tint familiar to every child with a 64-pack of Crayolas. Coincidence or not, it started to be heard as a name right after the introduction of the Toyota Sienna minivan. Actress Sienna Miller has been attracting enough attention to tone down those automotive associations.

Personal experiences with the name Cienna: | Edit

My oldest daughter's name is Cienna Faylinn. I originally wanted a more traditional name like "Hannah" but her dad wouldn't have anything to do with it. He suggested "Sierra" which I misunderstood as "Sienna". Our last name starts with "C" and we liked the idea of her first name starting with the same letter. Now I cannot imagine her having any other name!
