Sienna: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Sienna

Sienna

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.
