Etymology & Historical Origin - Shyanne

Shyanne is a phonetic re-rendering of Cheyenne, a modern American name invention taken from the Native American Indian nation that once inhabited the region between the Missouri and Arkansas rivers in the Great Plains. The word “Cheyenne” is French Canadian and ultimately derived from the Sioux Dakota word “šahíyena” meaning “speak incoherently” from the elements “ša” (red) and “ya” (speak). The Dakotas considered their own Sioux-based language clear and understandable (i.e., “white-talkers”); but to them the Algonquian-based language of the Cheyenne was incoherent and alien sounding (hence “red-talkers”). The Cheyennes were one of the most prominent of all the Great Plains nations and were closely allied with the Lakotas to the east and the Arapahos to the south. As time went on, the Cheyenne people were eventually pushed more northwest (Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas). In fact, the state capital of Wyoming is named after the Cheyenne Indians. As Cheyenne has become more popular in the United States for baby girls, the respellings (or misspellings?) of Cheyanne and Shyanne soon appeared.

Popularity of the Name Shyanne

Shyanne first made an appearance on America’s Top 1000 list of baby girl names in 1993, the year before Cheyenne rose to the Top 100 list. The spelling of Shyanne did okay for a while, getting as high as #482 on the charts (low-moderate popularity) in 1997. Today, however, Shyanne has reversed her course and is now no longer on America’s Top 1000 – which means she’s used so infrequently she’s barely detectable. Cheyenne has slipped in popularity as well. Once a Top 100 favorite, she’s now ranked in at #310 out of 1000 (2012). As Cheyenne’s popularity has diminished in more recent years, so too has Cheyanne and Shyanne.
