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.
That is one of my worries. If she truely is set on it, all I can hope is to find a name that blends it all together.
I say go for it, the name has meaning and there is no need to worry about anything else especially if your Wife wants it.
Oh and give him a decent middle name to help transition over to your last name. --- Xbox Live GamerTag: Keith Dragoon | PSN: Keith_Dragoon | Pokemon Platinum FC: 0775 0130 0771 I play for fun so I can never lose.
Is it racist to recognize that there are names that are race-specific in our culture (and others)? Honestly do you think that Shaniqua is an appropriate name for a white girl? Altair would be equally ridiculous. --- http://www.xboxgamertag.com/gamercard/lRushdown/fullnxe/card.png
Haha, at least you're not the couple who named their kid Dovahkiin.
Also, at least he can go by Al if he doesn't like it. --- http://i52.tinypic.com/30sab0i.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ZaclG.gif http://i.imgur.com/iu23I.gif http://files2.fliiby.com/images/_original/tp1822gz3k9.gif

Recongnizing specifics of cultures isn't racist. Its the way someone approaches it that makes it racist. Like I stated... you started coming off as a douche, but enough of this. You gave your opinion. Lets not turn this into some flame war. I would like to hear others' opinions.
Please tell me the Dovakinn thing is true. >_<; That would make my day.
Yup, and they got every Bethesda game ever (and into the future) free for life. So, basically they whored out their kid's childhood (you just know he's going to be made fun of all the time...hell, even in his adult life he'll have to endure constant questions and ridicule from morons) for free games. --- http://i52.tinypic.com/30sab0i.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ZaclG.gif http://i.imgur.com/iu23I.gif http://files2.fliiby.com/images/_original/tp1822gz3k9.gif
