Jordan names sprog 'Princess Tiaamii'

An improvement on '4Real'?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Bulgarian airbag platform Jordan, aka Katie Price, and "pop star" Peter Andre have named their recently-arrived sprog "Princess Tiaamii", the BBC reports.

Jordan told OK! magazine the first name reflected the fact the girl was "our princess", while Andre concocted the second by combining his dear old ma's name with that of Jordan's mum - Thea and Amy, respectively.

Andre explained: "Katie always loved the name Princess, but everyone thought it was a bit over the top. I loved it too but I wanted to name her after both our mums. Then I just woke up one morning and thought, I know! We'll just put them together! If people don't like it, that's up to them."

Jordan elaborated: "We've put an accent over the first A to make it more exotic and two Is at the end just to make it look a bit different."

We note that the Beeb has resolutely refused to add the alleged accent to the poor little girl's name, which we reckon would make it Tiáamii, or Tiàamii or even Tiäamii - if the parents are fans of the heavy metal umlaut.

Back in the land of celebrity überjubs, meanwhile, Jordan touchingly concluded: "I'm going to get a tattoo on the back of my neck with a crown and 'Princess' underneath."

The couple apparently briefly flirted with the name "Tinkerbell", but eventually rejected it not because it's a bloody stupid name for a kid, but rather because "too many celebrities had chosen it for their dogs".

Time will tell if Tiâamii, or Tiåamii, or Tiãamii, lives to regret Katie and Peter's inspired choice, as undoubtedly will the NZ youngster whose parents are currently battling to name him "4Real" (no accent). ®
