His name is NOT Connor... that is an alias he used because the foreigners could not pronounce his real name.
"Connor Kenway" is only a name "in theory".
Ratohnhake:ton was a Mohawk, and as such, his lineage traces through his mother. His mother's last name was not "Kenway"--- the foreigner she had him with had the last name "Kenway"---- but seeing as how his is a mohawk, that doesn't mean anything.
Do people not use his real name because they are lazy are they have a bias against his real name?
uh. no. it's not an alias he used because foreigners cant say his real name, its an alias he used because Achilles gave him that alias to use, and Achilles gave him that name not because people can't pronounce it, it was given because Achilles wanted Connor to mask his native american heritage (even commenting that Connor was fair enough to pass as hispanic).
Lit- Actually wrong. By British cutsom, he would be an illegitimate child, and thus not allowed to lay claim to lineage of his father---and British law would rule that the only lineage he has a right to would be is mother's lineage-- which is Mohawk, which is traced through the mother.
British and Mohawk law both say he traces through the mother, which is Mohawk.
