From Syria


Fair, Arrant, Resolute

The Architect

Syri is an English diminutive of Syria – a place name which means ‘From Syria’. The name Syria is originally Greek and suspected to be derived from Assyria, the ancient empire.

Syri is also possibly an English contraction of Sarah, meaning ‘Princess’.

Some other compelling names in this category include Syriana, Syrie, Syrien and Syrine. Alternatively, Syri reminds me of contemporary gems like Imra, Lydie, Amiri and Sierra.

It is unfortunate that this name is often associated with the Apple ‘intelligent assistant’ Siri.
