At the beginning I thought this was a mistake, but seeing a lot of people doing it, I wonder if it's some kind of a troll I don't get ... ?

    Ashoka was a very famous Indian monarch. You see the name pop up a little everywhere, for example an Indian restaurant near where I live. I bet that's why people confuse the names. They're extremely similar. At first I just thought that Ahsoka was Ashoka misspelled.

    it is my auto correct I probably never noticed.
  • Maybe some users are dislexic? With "Visual confusions between similar looking letters"
  • ashoka being an actual person is probably autocorrecting. Phasma gets autocorrected to plasma all the time on the forums, as does Daka to data.

    Most people are used to typing "sh" not "hs" - just a thought.
    In game name: Lucas Gregory - - - -"Whale blah grump poooop." - Ouchie

    In game guild: DeathStarVentDesigners - DVD for short.
    I beat the REAL T7 Yoda (not the nerfed one) and did so before mods were there to help

    This. Plus many of us have only watched the films. Took me starting to farm Dathcha before I could be bothered to work out how to spell the name...

    Personally, I find Ashoka much easier to say than Ah-Soka. I wish they'd just change it.

  • Rogue/rouge. Soldier/solider (this one made it into the description on one of the dark side missions). This sort of thing happens often.
  • iPad never auto corrects Jar Jar Binks....cause he is the boss.

    Well, what's your name ? Oh you know what, forget it, it's too complicated so I'm just going to call you Mike.

    Probably because of the same reason you typed 'so much' instead of 'so many'. It's either a mistake, laziness or lack of knowledge.

    Ahsoka. I did it! Myth busted. I think my phone just learned to not correct it because I type her name a fair bit. Ashoka is pretty goofy looking, though, so I would always do my best to try and correct it either way.
