Personally, I prefer to call our new ancestor Ratohnhaké:ton, but the prevailing usage is Connor, or Conner.

Just wondering which of the two spellings it is, as it's getting really annoying now. If you know, be prepared to back it up with a link. I've been searching for one with hard facts but can't seem to find it again.

Yep, that's the article I've been looking for. I'm just looking for where they got their information from in the first place.
Seems Connor is the correct spelling.

It's Irish. Originated from Irish Gaelic.

And @The13Doctors: Well you, sir, are wrong.

I want to know why Connor's Native American name has a colon in it. At first I thought it was a typo.

Is that a standard thing when Nation names are translated into a Roman alphabet, and if so does it signify a miniature pause or something?

Connor (from Conchobar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conchobar_(disambiguation)), an Irish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goidelic_languages) name meaning "Wolf Kin",[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connor#cite_note-0) "Lover of Wolves" or "Lover of Hounds" [2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connor#cite_note-1)),

I wonder why they moved away from the Eagle theme?

I think Ezio's name was only tangentially connected to eagles anyway, wasn't it? Like his name didn't translate to eagle directly, but the Greek form of the name did?

Yeah, I think you're right. Plus, with the Eagle being an American symbol, maybe it would have been too heavy handed...

Idk, I thought I remembered Ezio being the Italian word for eagle, or close to it anyway. And Altair means something about flying with eagles or something? I'm guessing that the change is probably due to the fact that he's Native American and we'll be seeing a lot more wolves and wildlife.

It's actually a Romanization of the Greek word for eagle.

Depends if there are more words in Italian for "eagle". The only one I know is "aquila", like the Latin, from which we get English words such as "aquiline".

Possibly a clan (http://www.thinkbabynames.com/search/1/clan) name related to theGreek (http://www.thinkbabynames.com/search/1/greek) word for "eagle (http://www.thinkbabynames.com/search/1/eagle)".

Completely off-topic, but why was The13Doctors banned?

Maybe because he was constantly disrespecting the new protagonist of the Assassin's Creed series by misspelling his name the entire time?
