    Rockmelon/cantaloupe?? Don't really care but I hate to break it to you but potato scallop will never catch on.. A scallop comes from the sea ;-)

    but I know this depends on where you were raised...

    MIL says 'fil-um' for film and it drives me INSANE!
    Most of my family say fil-um (Scottish). A lot of them also pronounce the letter J as "jai" ( as in rhyming with eye). Weirdos.

    Hence why it's a potato Scallop.. Potatoes don't come from the Sea.

    Its Haitch. My name is Hannah. If it was Aitch then people would pronounce my name Anna, which is not my name.
    You cant say that a letter is not pronounced with the sound that it makes? That would deffinetely confuse a kid.

    Each letter has a spelling, and the spelling for 'H' is 'aitch'.

    If you think about it, your name is not pronounced "Haitch-anna", and more than it is "Aitch-anna".

    Another example would be that, just as 'H' isn't pronounced 'Haitch', 'N' isn't pronounced "Nen", and someone called 'Naomi' doesn't pronounce it "En-aomi".

    What about C- see, it makes a c (as in c-ough) sound but is spelled without the letter c in its phonetic alphabet.

    Also:
    G- Jee
    I- eye
    Q- kew
    W- double u
    X- eks
