Congratulations to Atlanta Braves catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who is now the all-time major league record holder for longest last name at 14 letters.

Goodbye to former record holders such as Todd Hollandsworth, William Van Landingham, Ossee Schreckengost (who had a different name at birth, and it was shorter), Bill Knickerbocker, and Austin Knickerbocker.

I'll take my 10-letter last name and go off and hide in shame.

As someone who is always a little unsettled by change, I can at least say that this new mark disturbs me less than when David Aardsma knocked Hank Aaron off the top of the all-time alphabetical player register.

Is he going by Salty? J-Rod?

Are the Atlanta papers proclaiming that
"Braves not going with low-sodium diet"

You just need to change your name, Bob ... Timmermannschnell.

The family name used to be Timmerman. Then the Germans arbitrarily added an "n" to names like that in the 18th Century.

Obviously part of their plan to ensure that names would be misspelled as time went on.
