Kyhlo -> Ascalon?

I read in the wiki that during the beta, Ascalon City was Kyhlo, but was changed to Ascalon to avoid real world references because it sounds too similar to Cairo. I always found that pretty funny because Ascalon is a common spelling of the still-existing ancient city of the Philistine pentapolis, Ashkelon.

I assume the only reason Ascalon stuck was because the worry about real world references subsided?
