Siri Kept Mispronouncing a 'Simple' Name — Until This Celebrity Called Apple CEO Tim Cook to Complain Fortunately, Cook was receptive to the request.
- EGOT winner Barbra Streisand claimed Siri kept using a "Z" sound for her surname.
- The 81-year-old entertainer's memoir "My Name Is Barbra" will be released on Tuesday.
"My name isn't spelled with a 'Z'," Streisand informed the outlet. "It's Strei-sand, like sand on the beach. How simple can you get?"
Streisand's memoir My Name Is Barbra, which will be released on Tuesday, became a No. 1 bestseller earlier this year when it became available for pre-order, according to CNN.

Fortunately, Cook was receptive to Streisand's request. The CEO was "so lovely" and had Siri alter the pronunciation, she told the BBC, adding, "I guess that's one perk of fame!"
Another perk? Streisand's net worth, which sits at approximately $430 million, per Forbes.
