Chimera Description vs EvE Wiki Description

So I was looking at the chimera description in-game and saw as I knew already that during he first caldari-gallente war one was flown in caldari prime by Admiral Yakia Tovil-Toba. However when I looked up the caldari-gallente war on the wikipedia page and the page on the Admiral himself, it was spelt Yakya Tovil-Toba. (Notice the "ya" instead of the "ia")

So I put it to the forums and maybe someone official. Which one is correct?

I would hate for such a prestigious man of the Caldari Navy to be dishonored after giving his life to save fellow Caldari from the wrath of the vile Gallente Federation.

Grammar Nazi's will be ignored! (until I look up the dictionary to check if they are right!(then they will be ignored further)

I prefer the first spelling, but that's just my humble opinion. Cool

Don't bring up the Wiki, there are so many things wrong and outdated in that. They would have to stop all other work for a year just to fix it up.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

The correct spelling is Yakia Tovil-Toba.

People tend to be a tad more sensitive about name misspellings than other things (doubly so if it is their own name). Can't say I really blame them.

Then again, we're talking about some Caldari zealot, so who cares. Kill 'em all and erase them from the history books, problem solved ;)

Both should mention:
"The frequent use of Chimaera might render depressive making you cry all over the place and will undoubtedly lead you to be trolled on Eve O-forums. Never not use under 80 YO and always jump blind."

I thought the purpose of the wiki model is that if something is wrong, you can always publish a correction...

I like big guns. I can not lie. You other suckas can't deny. When I warp in, with an itty bity sig, with an arty in your face, you get sprung. You want to pull out your debuffs, 'cause you want to loot my stuff...deep, in a worm with nary, an escape but you can't stop staring. 'Cause, Oh crap!, Baby's got Point!
