Talk about serious prep work. B-ball star LeBron James, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and his lovely wife Savannah have revealed the name of their not-yet-arrived new baby.
The couple is way ahead of schedule, but perhaps, seeing as this is their third child, it’s that they have the whole rigamarole down and don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute, in a mad rush to come up with a name for the birth certificate in thee delivery room.
So, without further ado, the name of the darling gal we are expecting very soon is….Zhuri.
This is a unique spelling of the baby name Zuri. Swahili in origin and translating to beautiful, Zhuri sounds a bit like Suri with a Z (zur-ee), like the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, in the way that it is pronounced. While Zuri made its first showing on the US popular baby names charts in 2010, Zhuri with an h will be a whole new name to get in there. Seeing as it will be the name of the daughter of the basketball great LeBron, something tells us the name will have no trouble at all getting there.
With the slightly different spelling, LeBron’s new baby girl will share the name with the daughter of Bob Marley’s son Ziggy Marley, who was born in 1995.
Baby Zhuri will have leaders at home to look up to in older sibs, LeBron James, Jr., a brother who is 8 years old, and Bryce Maximus, a brother who is 6 years old. We can’t wait for Baby Zhur to get her already–let’s just hope Mother Nature was being straight with us and that this baby really is a girl!
