Nothing against Calamity Jane because she's an amazing human being but I think Annie would have made a better archer. Her shooting was world renowned. Then again she could always make an appearance down the line.

Did they only go with "Ashtart" because it sounds close to Ishtar like how Chloe's close to Kuro?
I don't know if that's brilliantly efficient or just exceedingly lazy. Probably a bit of both.

They could have gone with “Athtart” …

I'm not sure where the spelling came in (it might just be an alternate spelling), but Astarte is often considered a predecessor/inspiration/whatever to Ishtar, as well as others like Aphrodite (all of whom have similar "birth" stories, and even similar duties). As civilizations traded with each other they spread ideas, including concepts like deities. There is a ton of overlap in much of mythology.

OT; True, Jane was not particularly renown for marksmanship. But, I'm not sure how they decide what servants to go with. It's possible that they just did a google search, or that was a figure someone happened to know about.

Ashtart is another way to spell Astarte who, as someone pointed out, is basically another version of Ishtar.
And spoilers it fits with the fact that due to Christainity, Ishtar and Astarte was demonized into what we later see as Astaroth which fits with Ishtar Ashtart's beef of Humanity seeing her as a demon and wants to wipe everyone out for it.

Distinctive/memorable nicknames probably play a part. She was probably chosen for similar reasons as Billy, and given Jane's been in the game's files since 2015 I imagine they might've been planned together too.

I do like how in Jane's info it talks about how she's more of a debuffer due to in part her uncertain background. That couple with the fact she's super upbeat makes me like her even more to be honest.

But if they did a Annie Oakley servant in the future I bet she she's gonna be prime damage material.

If she ever becomes a servant I will snatch her right up! I'm an Annie fan (also I have a bit of a crush on her as well lol.)

I kind of wish they had put an e on the end of Ashtart-- I keep reading it as two words in my head and it has unfortunate connotations that way when applied to a woman.
