Suri By Any Other Name Is…

When Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes announced the birth of their baby, they said they named her Suri, which means “princess” in Hebrew and “red rose” in Persian. They were right on the second count, but Hebrew scholars in Israel say no dice to the first. “We seem to have learned a new Hebrew word, and from Tom Cruise, no less,” said an Israeli news anchor. No problem. Suri has plenty of other translations. It means “pickpocket” in Japanese, “pointy nose” in some Indian dialects, and is a breed of South American alpacas. Don’t be a lama, Suri. It’s okay, princess.
