You know the alternator on everyones car charges the battery when the engine is running.

Why is it called the alternator?

But I have a guess why its called an alternator, I don't know for sure, I just came up with it,
and I would like to know what ppl think of the validity of it.

Say I had an electric air pump, and an air powered electrical generator.

If i hooked that up between an air vessel and a car battery I could charge one with the other, then alternate, and then charge the other way round, and keep going until the lack of unity stops the process.

Is that why its called an alternator, because its charging an alternate electrical motor from the fuel engine?
