Katie Price has said she “hated” her real name and has had multiple nicknames throughout her career, from Jordan to The Pricey
Katie Price goes by many names and nicknames, but her real name is a lot mouthier than you would expect.
She has one Greek first name and three middle names, and Katie previously admitted she doesn’t know what her mum Amy Price was thinking when she chose them all.
Her full name is actually Katrina Amy Alexandria Alexis Infield.
Amy loved all names and wanted her daughter to have them all, with Katie, 43, previously saying she hated her name.
“I hated mine, I was born Katrina Amy Alexandria Alexis Infield,” she said. “I don’t know what my mum was thinking!”
Katie changed her last name to Price when she was 17.
She took her father’s last name, Paul Price, when her birth father left home when she was just four years old.
Just a few months later, she settled on the name Jordan, which she used as she rose to fame as a glamor model.
Katie once said that she chose the name Jordan because it sounded catchier than Katie.
But she later admitted she chose to use a fake name to protect her mother.
“My mother worked in the city,” she told The Telegraph. “She didn’t want people to know I was her daughter.”
Later in her career, she began going by her real name and has admitted that she hates when people call her Jordan.
Her nicknames over the years have included The Pricey, which features in her famous catchphrase, “Never underestimate The Pricey.”
Prior to their reported split, Katie revealed that she had planned on walking past Katie Woods when she married her fiancé, Carl Woods.
She has never taken her ex-husband’s name in the past.
The mother of five has been married three times: to Peter Andre from 2005 to 2009, to Alex Reid from 2010 to 2012 and most recently to Kieran Hayler from 2013 to 2018, with their divorce finalizing earlier this year.
Katie tells OK! Magazine: “We’re excited about everything, babies and marriage. I even talked to my mom about it and how it’s going to be.
“And I’m going to change my name from Katie Price to Katie Woods — I’ve never done that before.”
Carl added, “I wouldn’t get married if you didn’t change your name.”
Katie and Carl, 32, got together last summer and announced their engagement in April this year. This is Katie’s eighth engagement.
