Gender: F Meaning of Siri: "fair victory" Origin of Siri: Norse, diminutive of Sigrid

Siri is a charming and lively Scandinavian name that strikes a positive chord for a modern girl. Siri also means "secret" in Swahili. You might also vary it to Syrie or Cyrie. Can you really name a child Siri given the ubiquity of Apple's digital Siri? The next few years will tell whether this otherwise-enchanting name is still on the table (or perhaps even more popular) for humans.
