I feel weird about it because we have an English last name, but I guess that would be normal for generations to have names start melding together.

That would be ridiculous. The name itself not matching the child's ethnicity is bad enough, but being named after a video game character would be pretty embarassing as well. --- http://www.xboxgamertag.com/gamercard/lRushdown/fullnxe/card.png

^ what an idiot.

I really try not to consider ethnicity, but thank you for your opinion. As far a naming after a game goes. I really don't see the problem in it. The name has more meaning behind it than that. Look it up.

You don't consider ethnicity? Well I hope your kid and his schoolmates are understanding. If you're white, you should also Mustafa and Shaniqua lol --- http://www.xboxgamertag.com/gamercard/lRushdown/fullnxe/card.png

With an English last name, Altair would sound weird. It's a unique name, and it will make him stand out in a bad way. Expect him to get picked on regularly. If you're ok with this, then go right ahead.
