Flecha and Fletch­er

To­day’s pat­tern is so easy that you won’t rec­og­nize it un­til we tell you!

The clas­sic Eng­lish last name Fletch­er was giv­en to those who made ar­rows. This is un­sur­pris­ing if we re­mem­ber the Span­ish word for ar­row is… flecha. The f‑l-ch root is ob­vi­ous in both of them!

Now is when we all go in uni­son: ah­h­h­hh!
