    In name books it says Sarah means princess... Sarah.. Suri...? Esp. since I think Hebrew isn't big on vowels?

    Nope. Suri does not mean princess. See my above post. All vowels are pronounced; they're only ommited in informal writing.

    Siri is Norwegian for Sarah. Not that it matters for anything, but we have a lot of girls named Siri (and guys named Lars and Nels) here in Minnesooooota. For whatever it's worth, I like the name Suri (not that I'd name my baby that) and think that Cruise and Holmes (oh who am I kidding, she didn't get any say on this) didn't screw up that decision as much as I thought they would.

    From what I understand, Suri was short for Surika. Surika is what is being claimed as a Middle Persian name for "red rose."

    I have yet to see any definitive logic for the "princess" misunderstanding.

    Well, I'm sure no one was surprised that Tom left Katie and Suri to go promote MI III the next day or so later. Got to have them priorities straight I tell 'ya.

    Well, now that he's named Suri, he's also renaming Katie, er excuse me "kate". Gotta love his reason too. "Katie is a young girl's name. Her name is Kate now; she's a child-bearing woman"

    Excuse me while I go throw up just a little!

    oh good grief. She couldn't be an adult woman if she doesn't pump out a baby? And Katie Couric is some young girl? Tommy Boy needs a swift kick upside his head if he thinks he should be the person in charge of picking other people's names.
