Reply to: origin of name Saichel by Renee
"Satchel" is a name shared by both one of the great African-American baseball players, Satchel Paige, and Woody Allen's son, who was named after Satchel Paige.

Spelled "Sachel" and pronounced "SAY-kel", this is a Yiddish word meaning "understanding, common sense, good judgement".

Spelled "Sachiel", it is a name meaning "covering of God". According to *A Dictionary of Angels: Including Fallen Angels* by Gustav Davidson, Sachiel is "an angel of the order of hashmaillim (cherubim). Sachiel is resident of the 1st Heaven (in some sources, the 6th Heaven). He is a Monday (or Thursday or Friday) angel, invoked from the south (also from the west). In addition, he is a presiding spirit of the planet Jupiter. In poetic lore, he is called a servitor of the 4 sub-princes of the infernal empire."
