Asterisk :


Some people not only spell this word without its second S, they say it that way too. It comes from Greek asteriskos: “little star.” Tisk, tisk, remember the “-isk”; “asterick” is icky.


In countries where the Asterix comics are popular, that spelling gets wrongly used for “asterisk” as well.
