Going a bit further, I bumped into this case.

Since the note at some interval from another one keeps its pitch name in its 
different « variants », how about Db’s seconds?

 diminished second   Ebbb ???
 minor second        Ebb
 major second        Eb
 augemented second   E

I’m sure no one ever uses triple flats though, must have missed something…
