Suha: Can the Iraqi Girl Get a Last Name?

This is Suha.  She's average height, average build, and - so far as we know - she only speaks Arabic.  She seems cute, but boy can she be stubborn.  Does she ever mention her last name?  Jonathan doesn't know - the army may have taught him Arabic, but that doesn't mean he was ever that good. 

So maybe the girl's last name is Suha.  Or maybe that's just her nickname.  Or maybe it's some name she made up so the sweaty American with the machine gun would stop asking her dumb questions.

She wears a black hijab over her jeans and t-shirt.  And what kind of footwear does she favor?  Conservative slippers, of course, the kind that are perfect for walking to the market and sprinting away from the sound of explosions.  And you should know that she has no military training of any kind.  Unless her father taught her how to fire an AK-47.  It's possible, but unlikely.  Heck, for all we know, her father's Al Qaeda.  Or former Republican Guard.  Or just some poor shopkeeper who's always wanted a son but ended up with a daughter instead.  Unless of course he has a family of nine.  But we don't know for sure.  Jonathan might have a machine gun, but Suha ain't talkin.
