Antar is the name of the character in the famous Arabic folklore tale "Antar and Abla".

He was very passionate and hot tempered, the embodiment of the "macho man". Basically the song is about how a man acts tough and macho when out, while at home he's not so tough.

Thanks, Alb Sayed - I knew of the Antar and Abla tale but I didn't know the literary association, how people understand the reference (it's similar to a European calling a man a Don Juan - there's a story involved and you have to understand the context)
