Comments and insights on the name Shyanna: | Edit

hi my daughter is 7 months old and her name is also called shyanna, we named her after cheyenne but thought shyanna was different as we haven't heard the name before, i love the name but living in england people dont really understand it they assume we are calling her shy anna they respond with awww thats different with a puzzled face :). we dont mind though because we know the meaning and think her name is different and has character. Does any one else experience these issues?

Personal experiences with the name Shyanna: | Edit

I named my daughter Shyanna Dawn, I though it sounded great together.

---------------------------

My daughter's name is Shyanna, she's 9 months old. I don't know any other Shyannas anywhere.

---------------------------

My name is Shyanna & i only know one other person named Shyanna (spelled the same way too.) and she's my age and we go to the same school were friends. i got my name b/c my dad saw it on a name-tag on a nurse at the hospital & thought it was really unique and he named me after her, my mom and dad were originally going to name me Cheyenne, but i like Shyanna much better! lol (=

And idk if the Shyanna Dawn that a person wrote about up there was my mom or dad but that's my name, so if my mom/dad didn't write that i have the same 1st and middle name as someone else. cool!!!

---------------------------

Hi i'm 18 and my name is also Shyanna. So far having this name has been great because i have never met anyone else with this name and everyone thinks its very cool and unique.My dad actually made this name up within like ten minutes before writing my name on the birth certificate so iv'e always wondered if i was the first one and only one named this. The only bad part about having this name is that a lot of people don't spell it or say it right. My brother still calls me cheyenne instead of Shyanna sometimes. Yikes i know. Some of the most common mistakes people make with this name is spelling it with a c, using an i instead of y,pronouncing it shay-ann, spelling it like cheyenna, or thinking My name is Anna but im shy so its just a nickname, but its worth it i'm not complaining :) Anyways anyone thinking of naming their kids this, from my personal experience, i think its a great idea.
