PBS messing with my head

One of my daughter’s favorite television programs these days is called Dragon Tales. Among the animated cast is an adult dragon with a gravelly voice. His name is Queztal, which sounds exactly like ketzel, a word from my childhood that is about as far from gravelly-voiced adult dragons as you can get. Literally ketzel (or ketzele) means “kitten” but my mother often used it as a term of endearment for me and my brothers, something akin to “little one”. The juxtaposition throws me into minor confusion every time.
