Sequoia is a name whose legacy precedes it. It's Cherokee in origin and appears to be gender-neutral in usage. You may recognize Sequoia as the name of the large coniferous trees that grow in California, some of which stand at over 300 feet in height. These trees are believed to have received their title in honor of Cherokee scholar Sequoyah, who devised a system for writing in the Cherokee language. Sequoia may also share the same meaning as Sequoyah in Cherokee, possibly translating to “hog” from the word siqua. If baby Sequoia feels at home amongst giant trees and the animal kingdom, don’t be surprised.
