Sequoia
The scientific name of all three kind of redwood trees contains the word "Sequoia":
Sequoia sempervirens - Coast Redwood
Sequoia giganteum - Giant or Sierra Redwood
Sequoia glyptostroboides - Dawn Redwood

The name was chosen in honor of the American Indian Sequo-Yah, son of a Cherokee mother and the German immigrant Georg Gist.
Sequo-Yah developed the first Indian alphabet and brought scripture to the Indians.
