Cruise Baby Name Blunder

`Language experts are amazed Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have named their baby daughter Suri – because there is no record of the name meaning “Princess” in Hebrew. According to Hebrew linguists, Suri has only two meanings – one is a person from Syria and the other “go away” when addressed to a female. Hebrew expert Johnathan Went says, “I think it’s fair to say they have made a mistake here. There are variations of the way the Hebrew name for princess is spelt but I have never seen it this way.” Suri can also be translated into a Hindi boy’s name, and it also means “pointy nose” in some Indian dialects and “pickpocket” in Japanese.’
