Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Such a shame that people will always associate this with 'Hey, Siri', because it's actually a great name!❤.

It's a beautiful name, but expect jokes like, "Hey, Siri!" and "Siri, do blah blah blah." thanks to the iPhone AI of the same name.

It can also be a masculine name.

Siri sounds too much like the iPhone thing. I'd go with Iris instead.

Yes, people in the United States actually give this name to their children. The name Siri was given to 108 baby girls in 2012.

Iris spelled backwards. I love this name but, children are not robots, so, you get the point...

I'm not so sure this is a viable choice for American kids anymore, given the new iPhone gadget Siri, who talks to you from your phone and gives you directions/tells you your schedule/etc. As cool of a piece of software as it is, it's still software.

In my mother's mother tongue it's pronounced "See-lee" with an "r" sort of imbedded in the "l" sound. Go figure.

This name is so cool. Also, I've always thought it was pronounced exactly as it's spelt, like Si-ree (Sirry).

I once knew a girl called Siri - she pronounced her name like Surrey, and I though it was hideous. Now that know the real pronunciation, and I think Siri is very sweet and adorable. :)

I *really* like this as a nickname for Sigrid. I also like it as a full name. It works both ways!

Siri also means "secret" in Swahili. My sister named Siri found out when she went to Kenya last year. ^^

A famous bearer is the Norwegian-American author Siri Hustvedt.

I quite like the name Siri, especially since it is the name of Siri Hustvedt, who is my favourite author. Siri is to me both frail and strong.
CB_DK  6/18/2008
It's a simple, nice, pretty name. Despite the similar type of syllables, the name isn't infantile at all. It rather makes me think of a pale, slender, blonde woman with an ethereal beauty to her looks.

Very cute name, but do not use with the middle name Ann. Siri Ann is way to close to Syrian.
pandasayscynical  4/27/2008
Siri is also Iris, backwards!
Star Sister  8/30/2007
They are! I think that would make them cute names for twin girls. Even though Siri is Iris backwards and vice versa, they're pronounced differently enough that it's not a twinset that's overly confusing and bland like Britney and Brianna or something like that.

I named my little girl Siri. I wanted a name that was Scandinavian (I'm Danish/Norwegian, and her father is English, we each got to pick a first name), one that was not too common, and one that meant something I thought suited her. I don't like Sigrid much, so Siri won, I think it's a perfect name.
Desiree  8/19/2007
Siri is a minor Star Wars character in some of the Star Wars books. She falls in love with Obi-Wan.
quigonjecca  4/15/2007
I like it very much for a short name. It's cute, yet the rolled "r" gives it power. It fits a grown woman as well as a little girl, and it's fairly uncommon. Applause!
Tango  3/1/2007
Siri is pronounced as SEE-ree.
Ylva  7/1/2006
