Siri is pronounced as SEE-ree.

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!

Siri is a minor Star Wars character in some of the Star Wars books. She falls in love with Obi-Wan.

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.

Siri is also Iris, backwards!

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.

Very cute name, but do not use with the middle name Ann. Siri Ann is way to close to Syrian.

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.

A famous bearer is the Norwegian-American author Siri Hustvedt.
-- CB_DK  6/18/2008
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.

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

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

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. :)
-- Ailis  1/30/2010
This name is so cool. Also, I've always thought it was pronounced exactly as it's spelt, like Si-ree (Sirry).
-- Smo  10/30/2010
In my mother's mother tongue it's pronounced "See-lee" with an "r" sort of imbedded in the "l" sound. Go figure.

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.

Iris spelled backwards. I love this name but, children are not robots, so, you get the point...
-- SEC908  3/21/2013
Yes, people in the United States actually give this name to their children. The name Siri was given to 108 baby girls in 2012.
