If a man you don't have to use ة this is just using for the woman........

Why are you using this سورِيّ. A couple of Translation I answered that I give سورِية.

We usedّسورِي because it has a male name Ali, and سورِية has a feminine name. In Arabic we only add to the feminine singular adjectives “ة” which means ta marbouta.
