    That annoys me too! My name isn't Natalie but 'Natley' still gets to me!

    I strongly disagree. "H" is spelt "aitch". People have mispronounced it for so long that "haitch" is considered an alternative by some, but it will always be the result of an error.

    (Note there is no entry for "haitch"? Rightly so

    If so many people are getting it wrong... Maybe they should change it. I mean... Learning English is confusing enough... Why not say it with a" H" when that is how we use "H" in words etc etc

    Many letter names do not begin with the letter they represent. F, h, l, m, n, r, s, u, w, x, y.

    It makes as much sense to say we should change "w" to "wubbleyou"
