Just adding that it is called Siria in most of languages because in ancient greek it was pronounced Συρία /sy.rí.aː/, using the vowel υ, which in ancient greek sounded like the french U, or german Ü (you know, an "i" putting the lips as an "u"). The change from /y/ to /i/ has created the known "Syria" or "Siria".
