in the film forbidden planet the planet is called altair 4 . while this has nothing to do with the game it is quite cool.

<span class="ev_code_GREY">It's already been established that Altair is among other things, the brightest star in the Aquila constellation and the twelfth brightest star in the nighttime sky, twelve might not seem like alot, but when you're up against infinity it means something...

It's more likely that this was the influence for the movie, as well as the game.</span><div class="ev_tpc_signature">

from wikipedia

The game takes place during the Third Crusade. The gamer plays as a member of the assassin sect Hashashin known as Alta´r (Arabic, "The Bird")(could explain the eagle? in the beginning of teh video on the main page) (as a side note, Alta´r looks strikingly similar to the Prince of Persia himself, the only difference being that Altair wears a hood, and this game was developed by some of the same people). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassin's_Creed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassin%22s_Creed)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The name "Altair" is Arabic for "the flyer", from the phrase ??? ?????? an-nasr a?-???ir "the flying eagle". The spelling "Atair" is also used frequently. <div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Ok Just try to focus people,

What is written in Wiki is 100% right...How? Well here goes:

The "full" [and by full I mean the form of the word when you write it, not how you pronounce it...I hope this is not confusing] is Al-Nisr Al-Taiir...yes...double "I"...that's because here it's an adjective, this matter you need not to worry about...Anyway...So we got Al-Nisr which means Eagle AND Altair which means The Flyer...so why you people keep ignoring the word alnisr and say that wiki translated altair as eagle? which they did not! They translated AlNisr as Eagle and Altair as the flyer so when you merge them you get the Flying Eagle...I don't see where the confusion is...

When UBI or any other source translate the word Altair BY ITSELF as "The Flying Eagle" ONLY THEN they will be wrong, in case of Wiki they are not wrong because they have the word alnisr which means the eagle so altair has got to be the flyer...understand?

The summary:

Altair = The Flyer

Altaiir [Stretch it more] = The Flying

Al-Nisr = Eagle

Al-Nisr Al-taiir [The example in Wiki] = The Flying Eagle [So Wiki is right, YOU people are......]

Wiki put the word Al-tair in an example with another word to show you what they mean by "The Flyer", But some people thought that the muffin is a cookie and Altair is The Eagle in that example...:indif:

*Note that it translated backwards because Arabic is written from right to left...

just wanna add something on the Bird/eagle/flying stuff...

if you look at the hood of Altair, you can see that the cap of the hood is in the shape of a birds mouth. So he has something with birds.
Just wanted to add this.

Semitic languages are very hard for native English speakers as well as for Romance based language speakers. Arabic is made more difficult by the fact that there is a large difference between literary and modern spoken Arabic.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
