    It's an awesome name.

    Satchel is not a term used much in the US. I mean really, when was the last time you heard someone say "satchel" in day-to-day conversation? People just say bag. I'm guessing the people who are thinking it's a unusable are either not American, know nothing about baseball, or know nothing about Black history. I'd wager that the average American would instantly think of Satchel Paige, not a purse.

    It doesn't say anything about Satchel. He dropped the name not because he had a problem with Satchel but because he had a problem with the person who chose it. Whether his dad had named him John or Amadeus or Beverley, he would have dropped it because he wanted nothing to do with Woody.

    A satchel is a bag. It's cool as a nickname, and Indiana Jones can rock a satchel. I'm just not fond of it as a given name.

    I'm American and I definitely think purse. I love Thatcher and Fletcher.

    I instantly think of the bag or a certain insult that begins with satchel and ends in a not so acceptable word for your derriere.

    Satchel has a nice sound that is definitely appealing, but the name isn't. Dashiell as suggested above is a lovely alternative.
