Two Grandmothers' Names, Both Alike In Dignity

I guess for some people in the world's more creative cultures, unpronounced accents on names are like Nutella on crepes: there's no such thing as too much.

For example, British pop singer Peter Andre thought his first daughter with his "glamour model" wife, Katie Price, aka Jordan [her professional name from her topless days] should be named after her grandmothers, Thea and Amy.

But Theamy was deemed neither exotic nor different enough, and so, explained Jordan, they went with Teaamii: "We've put an accent over the first 'a' to make it a bit more exotic and two 'i's at the end just to make it look a bit different."

Tinkerbell was on the shortlist. Jordan calls her Bunny. Also, Teammii is her middle name. Her first name is Princess. The Daily Mail reports that all are doing well.

I always thought the "i" at the end was to make the name more "sexy" -- you know, like Cindi, or Candi, or Ghandi.

[Bambi. Cinncinati, the list goes on -ed.]

Any word on her BF status? If Jordon is a yes, I think DT has a new BF icon (see ya, Uma!)
If you've seen a picture of this woman, you'll know what I am talking about.
Special bonus points:
In October 2006, an article was published in The Daily Mail called Britain's Richest celebrity chavs. Price and her husband Peter Andre were ranked at #2, second only to David Beckham and Victoria Beckham. [from Wikipedia]
Wikipedia has a great explanation of the word "chav". It seems to combine the meanings of "white trash", "lager lout", "punk", "nouveau riche" and more.
