Based on a discussion at RVO's OrchidTalk Forums, it seems that this cultivar has had a few different names. 'Heiti Jacobs' is the name under which it was awarded and thus the appropriate name. It is also sometimes sold as 'Hetti Jacobs' and 'Heidi Jacobs'. As to which one was the intended name is anyone's guess.
