The name of 9/11 terrorist Mohamed Atta, also found spelled incorrectly as Mohammed Atta, was Mohamed Mohamed el-Amir Awad el-Sayed Atta.

Eric Umansky wrote August 23, 2005, that "Atta's full name is Mohamed Mohamed el-Amir Awad el-Sayed Atta. That's what was on his passport and if you look carefully on his U.S. visa issued in May of 2000. The name he went by before that--the name he used for example on email--is Mohamed el-Amir. Atta didn't go by 'Mohamed Atta' until the late spring of 2000, after Able Danger supposedly ID'd him."

Umansky also posted a link to "the flight manifest from the trip Atta took to Pakistan in November 1999 and his return to Hamburg in February of 2000. On both legs of the flight, the records identify him simply as Mohamed al-Amir."
