According to "the week", Dag Kittalaus, the Norwegian creator of the famous virtual assistant for the iPhone 4S, provided details on how the technology was named and how it seduced the late Apple founder.

He revealed at a startup conference in Chicago that he was planning to name his daughter Siri after a former coworker. In Norway, Siri means "a beautiful woman leading you to victory", even registering a domain. Then he and his wife had a son, and the site was closed.

Siri was unveiled in 2007, and the technology was launched as an IOS application available in the Apple store in early 2010, however, there was one issue, Jobs was not in love with the name.

Kittalaus, who worked at Apple until October 2011, continued to try to convince them that Siri was a great name, but in the end, the company clung to the name for a more straightforward reason: Nobody could have created anything better, and the choice was successful, the name is now used too As a shortcut to "Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface."
