Should it be Sirius Ater? If I remember correctly, Sirius was depicted as grungy, dirty and had a dark reputation as a murderer, in which case ater would be a more fitting description... Nooj 06:01, 20 Iulii 2008 (UTC)

Ater may or may not have been a better name, but it wouldn't really matter to the article; the books have official Latin translations, and 'Niger' is how the translator rendered the name. (There are a few choices in his translation that could do with modification, but as an encyclopedia we are not really the forum to propose them.) —Mucius Tever 10:27, 20 Iulii 2008 (UTC)
