I kind of love this and wish it weren't so darned unusable at the moment. Maybe the association will be diluted with time, but probably not for a LONG time.

beachbear Says:


I had a Groovy Girl doll named Siri and loved the name before Apple even conceived their system. It's unfortunate that now it's synonymous with a piece of technology.

yourlocaldumpster Says:


Apple kind of ruined this name because right now it's really hard to imagine someone actually named Siri.

katinka Says:


Lovely, light, airy name. But I have to agree that it's inviting teasing, or at the very least tedious and predictable jokes about being "a riddle wrapped in an enigma, tied with a pretty ribbon of obfuscation.”

No, you cant do this. Apple sorta ruined this name for me. I mean, a girl walking around with the name Siri just does not look right. But, hey, im not to tell you what to name your kids.
