Darkness at 3AM: A bit of cock

The 3AM Girls are a little slow, but they get there eventually:

Ting Tings fans, prepare yourselves for a rude awakening. The name of the indie pop duo - who shot to No.1 with debut single That's Not My Name - is Japanese for a male member. No, we're not, erm, taking the rise...

Leaving aside that this story was circulating ages ago, is it true? It might be a slang term - after all, look at all the glorious euphemisms for cock that exist in the English language - but no machine translator suggests that Ting or Ting Tings means anything at all in Japanese; and, indeed, if it was the case that ting ting is Japanese for penis, what does that say about the Japanese snack Ting Ting Ginger Candy?
