My Name

Sierra is a name with Spanish origin which means “saw” in English and “mountain” in Spanish. The name, however, has been used in the description of the mountain ranges because of the saw tooth appearances that exist on the picks. Sierra Nevada and Sierra Madre are good examples of the mountain ranges. It’s a name that relates to the sun rise. The beam of sun rays we see in the morning as the sun rises from the mountain peaks. Sierra for sweet and friendly, a name that matches my personality.

Sierra is a name for brown color. A color that can blend with so many other colors as one can never go wrong with brown if they use it. It is a name that my mother gave me as one of her wishes was to name a child Sierra because Sierra Boggess, celebrated American Actress was one of her favorite actresses.
