How Suri Cruise’s new name is a tribute to mom Katie Holmes

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ daughter – now known as Suri Noelle – chose her new name to “praise her mother”, a source said.

Suri not only dropped Cruise from her name, but now uses Holmes’ middle name, Noelle, as her last name.

“She praises her mother by using her middle name,” said a source, who speculates that the 18-year-old made the change because she “wants her own identity.”

The new name will also help her “avoid the paparazzi” and allow her to “start fresh at college,” says our source.

Suri used the nickname during her graduation ceremony from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, better known as “Fame School,” earlier this month.

But it wasn’t the first time.

The teenager – who played the lead role of Morticia Addams in her high school’s performance of “The Addams Family: A New Musical” – was also featured on the December show’s poster as “Suri Noelle.”

It is unclear whether his name was legally changed.

Page Six confirmed in March 2023 that Cruise remained estranged from his daughter and had “no part” in her life.

Holmes and Cruise went through a high-profile divorce in 2012, and the former “Dawson’s Creek” actress has been a single mother ever since.

“I feel very lucky to have such a special daughter. Being his mother is absolutely the greatest gift and privilege,” Holmes said.

The “Top Gun” actor, meanwhile, attended Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour show in London a day after his daughter’s graduation.
