Also I believe the correct plural form of octopus is octopuses. I learned this other day from a coworker. Octopus is Greek, not Latin, so it's technically incorrect to add the i for plural, even though it's accepted in some dictionaries since it's now common use. Someone wiser than myself could probably elaborate on this.
The correct plural should be "octopodes" for the reasons you've given. The word comes from Greek "okto", eight, and "pous", feet.
Due to popular usage, however, "octopi" or "octopuses" are both acceptable and are arguably correct as well.
