I suppose you are right and in modern Hebrew it's just the same as in English. This is probably due to my bad Hebrew: I was using my big Hebrew-Hebrew dictionay (Even-Shoshan) and had little time. So it's the "opposite" (this is the literal meaning of the Arabic word according to the Oxford Concise Dictionary of English Etymology) of the zenith really. Thanks for the correction.
(Nadir is also a German word, I just found out.)
