Did Katie Holmes change her daughter’s name? The actress has made a lot of changes in her life over the past few months, but changing a 6-year-old’s name seems a little drastic. Is she that desperate to get Tom Cruise out of her life?
No. The name change has nothing to do with Tom and everything to do with Suri’s safety. According to a new report, Katie has taken to calling Suri as “Sara” in public. Why would she do such a thing? Wouldn’t that confuse the poor child?
Suri is one of the most photographed kids in the world. She has done nothing to garner such attention besides being born to famous people. Suri and Katie try to maintain a fairly normal life in New York City. The two are regularly spotted on the streets, running errands and doing regular day to day activities. The only difference in their lives, versus most of the other people on the streets of New York, is the presence of the paparazzi.
For the most part, Suri and Katie could blend in. However, a source explains, “Everyone in the world knows Suri Cruise, so if Katie or a babysitter says, ‘Suri,’ people immediately look to find her.” Suri is a rather unique name and would certainly catch people’s attention.
Katie Holmes is being proactive in trying to shield her daughter from too much publicity. It cannot be easy for somebody so young to be stalked. Katie is doing what any mom would and protecting her daughter in any way possible.
