I really like this name. What do you think ?

It's fairly popular around here (not ridiculously so, but I know a few under 5). It's not really my style - too modern - but lots of people obviously do like it.

Very common in London, and not in the posh circles.....
So for me no, too common (by people I think are too common)
But outside of my world, I do actually like it.

Think it is better if spelled Siena, like the city.
Not massively keen though, sounds too much like senna (the laxative). Also may be perceived as a bit 'common', as already mentioned.

I didnt mind it but I think earlier posts have now written it off for me

NaiceNickname Fri 21-Nov-14 18:49:15

Very common and not in a good way around here (NW)

Bit chavvy Serena is much nice IMO or savannah is still more unusual

I prefer the Siena spelling too. Such a gorgeous little city.

Findingthisdifficult1234 Fri 21-Nov-14 20:27:32

Ooh so it's known as a chavvy name!

usualsuspect333 Fri 21-Nov-14 20:33:07

Its a beautiful name.

And fuck off with all your 'common' and 'chavvy' comments.

TheNewClassic Fri 21-Nov-14 20:39:22

Its not a chavvy name op.
its a beautiful name. The Siennas I have met have been gorgeous too.

AlpacaYourThings Fri 21-Nov-14 20:42:04

I like it.

Chavvy? DFO.

usualsuspect333 Fri 21-Nov-14 20:42:17

I'm not really sure why words like 'common' and 'chavvy' are seen as acceptable on the baby name topic.

Well I think it's better than Vienna. I know a few of those. I think these sort of names like Paris etc are just not the best. They seem a bit wrong. Florence is ok though so not sure as to my rationale.

birdofthenorth Fri 21-Nov-14 20:44:04

Insane incestuous baddy on Hollyoaks is my first association. Obviously that'll pass.

squoosh Fri 21-Nov-14 20:47:26

Why would anyone call their kid Vienna? Can you imagine how many times a week they'd get 'OOOOOOHHHHHH VIENNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAA'.

If I was a Vienna I'd be doing hard time for murder.

AlpacaYourThings Fri 21-Nov-14 21:10:56

Because some people are twats, usual?

SomeSunnySunday Fri 21-Nov-14 21:40:54

Gosh I hate the 'c' word, but at least 2 of the Sienna's I know are about as far away from it as you can get (if I force myself to think in those terms). One in particular is very prep school / pony club.

Findingthisdifficult1234 Fri 21-Nov-14 21:58:38

Ok so it's not a chavvy name! Haha you lot confuse me!
Well I like it, so IF I have a girl I will probably use it. Never heard of a Sienna round here. I live on the south coast

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 22-Nov-14 00:32:33

It's very commonly used where I live at the moment. Know of 5 in the last year or so and a few around 5/6 years old too.

I don't like the meaning. Sienna is a colour, a shade of brown.

Findingthisdifficult1234 Sat 22-Nov-14 06:26:25

Yes the meaning does let it down a bit. I can't think of any other names I like as much, I like Matilda. But would that have too much association with the movie?

GaryShitpeas Sat 22-Nov-14 07:55:51

I love it. I wanted it for dd2 and would have been her name but her dad didn't like it

TheNewClassic Sat 22-Nov-14 08:44:02

matilda is terrible.

Thehedgehogsong Sat 22-Nov-14 08:52:11

Sienna is a lovely name, and there's only 3 around here that I know of. Nothing 'chavvy' associated with it for me, but then again I'm not a frequenter of Waitrose so perhaps it would be different if I were. grin

Matilda is a great name too. Probably less 'popular' than Sienna, and the film is great so who cares about the link!

Findingthisdifficult1234 Sat 22-Nov-14 08:55:43

That's true. Just need to choose a name and not worry what people think and associate it with!
What are your children's names? If you have any?
