You can't do a celebrity baby-name gallery without starting it with one of the most elusive and fascinating of celebrity baby names - Suri!

It's said to have its origins in the Hebrew meaning, "princess," or the Persian meaning, "red rose." But "Suri" has been quite the subject of contention among Hebrew experts. Some have even called it a mistake. According to them, "Suri" has no connection to "princess," but rather, it's a nickname for the biblical name "Sarah," may refer to a "person from Syria," or it simply means "go away."

Since I personally think the name is beautiful and love it for Ms. Suri Cruise, I'm going to ignore the fact that, in some Indian dialects, "Suri" means "pointy nose," or that, in Japanese, it means "pickpocket."

She was born on Sunday July 10th 2011.  Sunday is the first day of the week not the seventh.  Facts don't change to satisfy idiot celebrities.

They didn't say that the Chinese consider the number 4 to be un-lucky.

They like the name Olive, cause her doctor said that the baby was the size on an Olive at a check up.
