Katie Price's real name revealed as she admits she changed it because she 'hated it'

KATIE Price isn't the star's real name – and it's not Jordan either.

The 43-year-old model and reality star was given a Greek first name and not one but THREE middle names by her mum Amy.


Katie's full name is actually Katrina Amy Alexandria Alexis Infield.

The mouthful of a moniker was chosen by Katie’s mum, Amy, who loved the beautiful names and wanted Katie to have them all.

Mum-of-five Katie explained to The Guardian: "Mum must have had a lot of gas and air during my birth, with the number of names she gave me.

"Katrina Amy Alexandra Alexis Infield? It’s a lot. I hated them so, at 17, I changed it. Katie Price suited me better, thanks very much."

The former glamour model went on to change her name when she was 17.

Katie’s decision to drop her surname came after her biological father left home when she was just four-years-old.

Her mum went on to remarry Paul Price and she decided to take on his last name as her own.

While she used Katie for a couple of months, Katie changed it again – this time to Jordan to launch her glamour modelling career.

Katie previously said she chose the name Jordan because it sounded more catchy than Katie.

However she’s also admitted she did it to help protect her family, telling The Telegraph: “My mum was working in the City.

“She didn’t want people to know I was her daughter.”

As she got older, Katie dropped the name Jordan and rebranded herself.

In interviews, she would be referred to as “the model formerly known as Jordan” and hated when people didn’t use her full name.
