Personal experiences with the name Sequoia

Sequoia is the name my mom picked for me because of the car or truck that was in front of her when her water.

It reminds her of the Sequoia Indian and she said she hoped I was as smart as him.

Everyone I know spells Sequoia as I just spelled it but my mother gave me a unique spelling Sikwayi, I have never seen it spelled the way my named is spelled and no one ever pronounced it right (: I'm very blessed for my unique spelling and name (:
