Maybe I missed something, but the ACWiki says his middle name is James. Does anyone here know where this was revealed?

James is possibly the most English name in the world, so yeah, his middle name is James.

Wow James? That's a surprise, James sounds to plain to be his middle name.

I'd say Edward is just another plain English name, as is Connor to be honest, so I don't really find it that unfitting.

James is my middle name as well lol. It's just a name. The man behind it is the only thing that matters.

Who would name their kid "Son of None"?

Oh, yes, Altair's parents, apparently.

Stop continuing to derail the tread, silvermercy, thanks.

HiddenKiller, I like your name. It's a cool name.
lol thanks.

As for his name.Edward wasn't always an assassin... His father isn't an Assassin like Ezio, or Altair. He isn't native american like Connor. When you're born an assassin, you have a family of assassins. Your name has meaning. As with connor, or his other name that I can't spell or pronounce for the life of me. Native Americans always had a name with meaning. Edward is just a welshman. He lets his deeds define him, more so than his name. Which is why he'll make a great assassin

What is the problem? I think an assassin would not want people to notice him much so haveing a verry comon nane is good in a way. Edward isnt exactly a rare name either, not in my town at least. The only name in my town more common than Edward is James.

And Mama Auditore had a thing for Eagles, apparently.

That's true, wasn't the middle name back then your "christened" name you got when baptized as a child?

Eh, James is a nice name, and just like Edward, one of the most common male names of that time.

What I meant by "plain" is because Edward is so flamboyant.

That makes four of us: Connor shall RISE

Two: Don't pin this on Silver as you started this. Why are you not banned? I had issues with Hayth_M, Jexx and Triple and countless others yet I've never ignored them. Mods do not listen. When I'm more tolerant on Jack then you know you are naughty

Three: Why are you supporting an Assassin which a Templar sig? And I mean PRO-Templar sig? And why Haytham? Because he's the Templar with the best points? I hate Haytham fanboys/fangirls >_<

But yeah, I just find it ironic, TheElderSons :P


I like Connor but dude. get over it

Don't look at me. Look at the person who literally taunted another user for her interests, accused another for trolling and started bashing another character for no reason.

We all know you aren't an Assassin unless your name is connected with eagles. It's the rule. Seriously though, don't let people who clearly like to start fights get to you. Trolling or not, it's just petty to purposely provoke other members. Edward is a very common name, but being a pirate will probably let him stand out with previous protagonists.

and ew twilit sprkle

Because you know, its possible to like both sides fo different qualities instead of lining up on one side with guns pointed towards the other.


And why Haytham? Because he's the Templar with the best points?

Because he's awesome, in every way. I wish AC3 was wholly about him.

You think he adopts his middle name in the London circles?

"My name is Kenway. James Kenway"
"I like my rum shaken, not stirred"

It comes from the ACinitiates site. That is where I saw this morning when I checked.

Deal with it.

I had this whole speech thing prepared about how Haytham was born an Assassin, and how the moral line between Assassin and Templar is altogether blurry, and Grandmaster is a badass title, but...I'll let you speak for me.

Edward is derived from Old English words ead (meaning 'wealth', 'fortune' or 'prosperous') and weard (meaning 'guardian' or 'protector'). Its a perfect name for a treasure hunter.

James is derived from Jacob, i.e. the guy who wrestled an angel. Now, how did the Assassins make their start...?

NOW who has the cool name? :cool:

Haymich full name is Haytham/Haymitch E. Kenway.

I'm gonna guess and say the E stands for Edward.

Most likely but there has been no conformation on the matter.
