Sienna vs. Stella — The Bump
Baby Names

Sienna vs. Stella

Hi all,

We want to use a girl's name that begins with the letter S.  We are trying to decide between Sienna and Stella.  To me, Sienna seems like a softer name, while Stella is a bit bolder.

What are your thoughts?  Any help is appreciated!  Thank you so much ladies!

Re: Sienna vs. Stella

  • Stella, hands down!

  • Sienna is a color. And a minivan. I don't like Stella but prefer it over Sienna.

  • I think they're both great, but if I had to choose for myself I'd go with Stella.

  • Sienna is a poop brown color and a stripper name.

    Stella is a beautiful name. 

  • Marlon Brando said it best:

    STELLA!

    Absolutely no contest there. Seriously. None.

  • I don't like either but I prefer Sienna. Stella reminds me of "How Stella Got Her Groove Back".

    I agree with this comment.  Stella is NMS but prefer it to Sienna.

  • wow! It seems like you have split responses here- but my vote is for Stella. I feel like Sienna is more trendy and NMS.

  • Stella sounds like those ppl that name their kids Henessey or Alize because of the wine Stella Rose

  • Stella!  It sounds respectable to me where Sienna sounds flighty or soft. 
  • I love Sienna. It's pretty. We may use it if we have a girl.

    Stella sounds very adult and harsh to me. But I also haven't met any Stella's under 40 so maybe that's why.

    We (also looking for an "s" name) were also thinking about Sierra and Savannah.

  • I like Sienna, to me it does NOT sound like a strippers name, and who cares if it is a color, I'm pretty sure people would not bother to think about it (unless they were overly picky and critical).

  • Sienna.  my issue with Stella is that it is too close to the ella/Bella popularity.  Don't think it's a bad name.  Not sure of the name itself as far as popularity, feel like i've been hearing it A LOT.
