It’s Satchel!

Oh my word how embarrassing. We’ve had over 1500 hits today, and I’ve been correcting people left and right. But the extra L has to go, no?

I think it being Sunday may have bought us a little extra time. Alex liked Satchel with one L from the start.

Send thoughts if you have em.

    As discussed on the phone, I vote for keeping two L’s. “Satchel” was a nickname, and do you really want to name your son after a handbag?

  • 2. Paul and Sarka  |  November 24, 2008 at 12:07 am

    One L looks better, and Satchel has an anagram in “latches.” 🙂
    But it’s totally your and Alex’s call, so…

    double letters work for me. It will be misspelled regardless….

    I like the one L. But I’ll still take him, no matter what! HAHAHAHA
    IS this joke not funny any more?

    Hey Dan (and Alex who I know not yet), congratulations on this amazing success! I was thinking about you guys today. I hope to meet all five of you sometime after our li’l girl arrives.

    peter and i keep tuning in to your wonderful news, views, blog and yes. one L !!! LOL

    Hey Dann,

    We, Charlottte and Jefff, think it’s no big deal, but we do prefer 1 “L”, and isn’t he named for Satchel (one L ) Paige?
    Luv to Alexx

    The sweetest dreams to all 5 of you sleepyheads.

    Can’t wait for tomorrow’s update! We can barely stand it!

  • 9. Doug & Sheila  |  November 24, 2008 at 1:47 am

    Just checking in. What a wondrous day! Tears in our eyes…
    Love you 5!

    Ah, the ol’ two Ls versus one L conundrum. Michelles/Micheles know it well. I say go with the one L, or else he’s going to have to deal with “Are you named after Satchel Paige? He only had one L, right?”

    Congrats– can’t wait to meet them!

  • 11. Leah and Martin  |  November 24, 2008 at 2:19 am

    A HUGE congratulations to you both, and to your three beautiful boys for hanging in there! This is such an exciting time and we are both so incredible happy for you all. We’ve been thinking of you often and can’t wait to meet these little sweethearts someday!

    I say one “l.” May as well give old Satchel P. his due. Plus it mirrors that ole’ confusing one “n” Sonenberg! Satch can just say: “that’s one l, one n.” My two cents.

  • 13. Holly  |  November 24, 2008 at 2:54 am

    Auntie Nina posts wise.

  • 14. Yory  |  November 24, 2008 at 2:56 am

    I vote for one ‘l’ too–but regardless you came up with three great names. Love them! Can’t wait to meet the little ones soon.

    Hey there~
    Wow….they are beautiful little bundles. Alex, I hope you are feeling better today. Get out of bed and stretch…it helps with the discomfort, take it from me. Hopefully we will meet these miracles very soon. We will continue to follow your site.
    All our love and stay strong!
    Dan, Megan, Caroline, Joe and Ella
