With Oko, you will copy the text, but the Enter the Battlefield (ETB) trigger will not occur as Oko is already on the battlefield when Tishana is copied.
Compare to Clone , which ETBs as a copy of a creature, or Cackling Counterpart which creates a token (a newly-created token ETBs). Those copies will have the ETB ability as they enter, and thus will trigger the ETB ability.
Also, as a note, Tishana is legendary. If you control two legendary permanents named Tishana, Voice of Thunder , one will be sent to the graveyard as a state-based action. Both Oko and the above-mentioned cards will copy her name as well, so one of the copies will go to the graveyard as a SBA (if you got the ETB trigger, that will still resolve and still draw cards--triggers exist independently of the permanents that caused the trigger).
Compare to cards like Lazav, the Multifarious , which specifically states it retains its own name when it copies the object; or Helm of the Host , which specifically states that the legendary aspect is not copied.

DivineMeme, there's no rule against cloning legendary permanents. The "legend rule" simply says that if you have two or more legendary permanents with the same name, you must choose one to keep and the rest are put into their owners' graveyards.
So I could cast Clone copying Muldrotha, the Gravetide just fine. I would then have two permanents named "Muldrotha, the Gravetide," so game rules would require me to choose one of them to keep and the other would go to my graveyard.

Clone is an iconic card in this game, inspiring numerous variations of it, nearly all of which are actually superior to it (but that is an instance of “power creep,” which occurs in nearly any game), most of which are mono-blue, as is the original, but there are some multicolored variations; Evil Twin is a black/blue variation, Dack's Duplicate is a red/blue variation, and both Altered Ego and Progenitor Mimic are green/blue variations.
However, thus far, there is no white/blue variation of Clone , so I do hope that such a creature is printed eventually, since white is my favorite color in this game.
What does everyone else say about this? Will there eventually be a white/blue variant of Clone ?

Shared Animosity I'd use over Coat of Arms.
You also have access to Clone s. Stunt Double , Spark Double , Dack's Duplicate , and Clever Impersonator are some of your better budget friendly options. Seeing as this is pretty casual, also consider Altered Ego .

Just an FYI you have been mislead on Torpor Orb Titi will still have the counters on it as it is not a triggered ability. If it were triggered it would read WHEN titi enters PUT 4 counters on it, but it is considered a replacement effect such of that of Clone and therefore does not have any interaction with Torpor orb.

The copy ability gained from Volrath, the Shapestealer will wear off at the start of your next turn, at which point the Clone will revert to the Volrath copy it was. So if Volrath was copying a Storm Crow when Clone copied Volrath, then the Clone will revert to a 7/5 Storm Crow with the activated copy ability. This is because the time limit on Volrath's copy ability is not one of the copiable values of the object, and Clone 's copy effect has no duration.
The same applies to tokens made with Quasiduplicate . They will copy whatever Volrath is copying (let's say that Storm Crow ), and if you activate the copy ability, then at the start of your next turn they will revert to the Volrath-Crow.
- 706.2. When copying an object, the copy acquires the copiable values of the original object’s characteristics ... The “copiable values” are the values derived from the text printed on the object (that text being name, mana cost, color indicator, card type, subtype, supertype, rules text, power, toughness, and/or loyalty), as modified by other copy effects, by its face-down status, and by “as . . . enters the battlefield” and “as . . . is turned face up” abilities that set power and toughness (and may also set additional characteristics). Other effects (including type-changing and text-changing effects), status, and counters are not copied.

In your first question, the Clone goes back to whatever it was when it entered the battlefield: the creature Volrath was copying as a 7/5 with the special activated ability. Your second question involving Quasiduplicate sounds like it's the exact same circumstances as the Clone question, so that means the answer is the same. Let me know if I missed something different about the Quasiduplicate question.
The key thing to know is that if you apply a new copy effect on top of an older one, the older one doesn't get erased. It's still there, just covered up by the new one. If the new copy effect goes away then the older one will have precedence again.
