Top 10 Best Letters in the English Alphabet

The Top Ten
1 A

Such a revolutionary yet grotesquely beautiful letter. Words can't describe how linearly three those lines form with graceful angles; making such a perfectly-shaped triangle of such sheer beauty bound within those strong lines. With the letter A, you have the power to save even the worst world problems currently existing in this planet called earth. But not many people understand, this letter is the way, and the true meaning that unlocks the essence of life.

You know what I noticed?

'A' is first, 'S' for second, 'E' is third, and 'Z' is fourth...

Now those letters are combined in order, it will become "ASEZ"...

"ASEZ" sounds like assess...

Nice job TheTopTens community, I see what you guys did there!

A is the Angelic letter and represents the number one. A is awesome in all ways, say it with grades or with always coming at first. even in Alphabates it represents the first letter. Awesome!

In case you forgot, A stands for A Pal For Gary?
Just because A is the first letter doesn't mean you have to love it, like geez.

2 S

My name starts with an S. I am not even english but this letter is so beautiful and powerful! I think it should be on the number one spot, but second is fine to me.

My name starts with S, but almost all of my favorite words start with S: soul, smile, share, support, sympathy, spirit, success, sense, splendid, self-confidence, self-esteem... so positive and beautiful!

I love this letter because it is so commonly used and it is the first letter of my last name and the last letter of the middle name.

Whoever said their first and second name start with S, my first name, middle name, and last name start with S.

3 E

The letter e is a really good letter, it can be used in any sentence and it is used in words like cheese, bread and cheese. The letter E is amazing because it is also shaped like a building. You can go up to each floor and explore! It is also used in many sentences/words. It is also in many names. That is why I think the letter E should be the president of all of the letters in the world. Plus if you use it in lowercase, it becomes a cup, that can be cold tea in the summer or hot chocolate in the winter!

E is the most used letter of all letters. You get extra e's in scrabble too. That is because it is the best and most incredible vowel. Also, all the best names start with E.

E is such an important letter since you use it in so many words. Also it's a vocal and gets pronounced in almost every letter. Its Energetic and Electrifying.

Not only is it the most used letter, in the English alphabet, but it also looks really good and if you're not careful your computer screen will be full of them!

4 Z

It's a strong letter that provides a clear identity for those who are blessed to be born with it in their names. You can mark your stuff with a Z and people know who you're talking about you can't do that with most letters.

My last name is Zamora too and I love it.
It's such a unique letter. It's the last one, but the best one of all.

That ticks me off when Z isn't a commonly used letter when replaced with S, much to my disappointment when they analyzed the frequencies of how letters are used, but my point of view on the letters of the alphabet that they should all be equal to each other when used frequently and commonly from A to Z

Z is the last but never the least underestimated alphabet!

5 X

X is one of the least used letters in the alphabet, and deserves more love! No states or countries start with X! It can stand for anything as a variable, and even if you cross it out, you just make more of it! X is epic (especially in AlphaBattle Contest! Look it up. ) and is by far the best letter in the alphabet!

I really like this letter very underrated and it needs more love and X stands for X-mas!

I like X! It's a very underrated letter! It isn't in my name, but I have a friend named Xenia.

X is the best especially if there's three in a row. You know what I mean.

6 B

B is just so unique in its sound, with almost few others being close. It's a great letter and it looks happy. Also, it is rarer, so it is more rich, because you never use something rich up unless you want it dried out. Also my name begins with this wonderful letter!

This letter is one of the WORST letters for Asian parents to see on their kids' report cards and tests...

B is my favorite letter of the alphabet. It looks happy and has to be ranked higher.

Fourth favorite letter

7 M

It makes such an appealing/comforting sound and starts off some of my favourite words, which I appreciate for the way they sound or how it feels to say them ("melody," "music," "moxy," "marvellous," "meretricious," "moon," "metaphor," "mew," "mercury," "municipal," "mundane," "macabre," "muddle," "mutiny," "mimic," "mini," "mix," "max," "maximum," "million," "militant," "milky," "milo," "middle," "mist," "misplace," "misnomer," "misconstrued," "mischief," "miasma," "mitten," "mitzvah," "miraculous"...)

M is such a cool letter in the alphabet it should be at number 1 like seriously words like mighty and other cool ones like music or mystic starts with oh more yes there are more cool words starts wit M!.

My name starts with a M and I think it's a really useful word. I mean like, with out the letter m we wouldn't have survived!

I love M because my name starts with it. It looks like the best alphabet. In a Cell phone, (type one, not touch phone) M is Craved on the number 6 and 6 is my lucky number. Also, it's the 13th letter of the ABCD :) Just lovi'n it..!

8 C

I really like c. its pretty cool and one of my favourites. not much to say but I don't know why it's so cool to me. Well just how it looks

This letter is the only letter of the alphabet that doesn't have its own sound. K and S make their own sounds, but C just copies them.

C is a crescent moon which look pretty beautiful and are fun to look at. And C also looks like a shape of a refresh button which can be helpful at times. C also looks like a wave of water in the sea which are cool. C looks like a handle of cup and drawer, which are necessary at times as you need a handle to hold cup and open drawer. C is a good looking and helpful letter.

All my favourite things start with C! Cat, Cow, Canada, Crocodile, Crow, Coelacanth, my cat's name is Callie. My name starts with A, but whenever I come up with names for characters, I always have ones beginning with C or K because I love the sound!

9 L

My name is Lucy so I love this letter. My little brother's name also starts with an L. Love, live, learn, laugh, lesbian, and other strong words.

L is one of the greatest letters of all time, have great words that this letter begin with.
loyalty, love, lesbian <humanist>, I could say more but that will be a lot.

I am honestly surprised this isn't in the top three. A very popular letter, and the one that most shaped the world into what it is today.

L is the best! I have to say all the poles have the same things. A is always number 1 because A TON of people have a name that starts with A and the grade. Well, S is the best rank or grade so, S is the 2nd best letter. R and Z are numbers 3 and 4.

10 K

The 'K' just look awesome. Awesome and sinister. When it replaces a 'c' that went at the end of the word, you've got terrifying constructions like, 'classik,' 'traffik,' and, 'academik.' My uncle's name also begins with this letter and he shows much pride about it.

K looks awesome to read, is easy to write, and has such an attractive sound. I don't (k)now why, but I just find K such a lovely letter. I am also a name nerd, so when I browse through certain names I find the K sound to be very attractive. Especially in Japanese names. Such as Akira, Kouki and Katsu for boys, and Kokora, Hikari, and Sakura for girls!

No lie, my name starts with K, but I like it because there are some nice words that start with K! For example, kittens, knowledge, keen, kind, kempt. by the way my name is Kim! Everyone needs more K is their life. Vitamin K is the best vitamin!

K is a great letter! My name starts with it. Kind, koala, and kangaroo start with K but I can't think of anything else. K deserves more love!

The Contenders
11 D

This letter is quiet cool...Deserves to be a lot higher in the list

In terms of shape, D is beautiful, taking up a fair amount of space without seeming boxy or oversized. The curve is beautiful, and not as hard as that of R or b. The "dee" sound is beautiful as well

My brothers name starts with a D!

My name starts with D.

12 R

Of course as someone who's seen the letter R on everything they worked on, (including my rap logo, but I can't draw so rip) it's the most familiar letter to me. I used to hate my name, but now I love it. I realize that Ryan is a badass name and have accepted it.

It's a smooth letter. Accents usually change the "R" sound, even English people make it sound like a "D" sometimes.

R is the bad boy of the alphabets
Rebel, Radio, Rampage, Richard, Rezznor, Ripley.
Even great band names start with R, Rage Against The Machine, Radiohead, Rush

I agree with my non account me below (before I had this account), it sounds better than all other letters.

13 J

J is the most useless and stupid letter of the alphabet being the most recently made letter. Before the letter J was invented, people used to use I's instead, and for that reason - J is stupid and useless and therefore the best letter of them all

J is my favorite letter of the alphabet eve though it isn't in my name. J is the best letter of the alphabet because not only is it versatile, it sounds good and starts tons of positive words like Jubilant, Jolly, Jovial, Jaguar and a lot more. J also resembles a candy cane. Love its shape. J can sound like G, H, Y, W or Z. J is the best letter!

I think this letter's cool. I like how it curves at the bottom and this is the first letter of my sister's and my dad's name. S is not a bad letter but I love J.

J is honestly just really powerful.
There are no like weird names that start with J
And it reminds me of a Jawline. Yasss.

14 F

F is underrated, which is sad, as it's beautiful in cursive, and has a bunch of awesome words beginning with it. Just look up a list. You'll see. I feel like people are just going by their first letter of their names, and not the overall coolness of the letter. Plus, just my opinion, but A is overrated. And Annoying. And Agravating. And Agonizing. F is Fashionable. And Fun. And Fearless. And Fantastic.

F because my favorite band "Fall Out Boy" starts with f and so does a pretty great swear word if ya know what I mean.

The F word is beautiful word in English, you can add it to the beginning of any word and still makes sense!

Asian parents who see this on a report card or test grade will mean instant death and disgrace.

15 G

G is the best because it's the start of my name, Georgia!

G has the best Shape ever. I love this letter because it sounds good and also my name starts with G and that's why I think G is my favorite even though I think I would have still liked this letter even if my name didn't start with G but also I like other letters as well not just G.

My sister and My dad name starts with a G!

Because it the starting of my name.

16 H

(no 'jee's are in this comment, you are safe fellow H fans)

H is far beyond a mere letter. H is a mentality. H is a lifestyle. Just to Have H in our lives makes tHem infinitely better. H Hides in our words and is Humble despite H's divinity. H is tHe true deity of our lowly world. Love H. CherisH H. H is all, and all is H. Amen.

I just wrote an argumentative essay for my teacher about how influencial the letter H is on our daily lives. All of the questions that we use to gather information about the imperative and trivial things in our life have the letter H in them. The funny thing is, though, that I left every single H in a word out of my essay except for the quotes and the last two sentences. Until I wrote this essay, I never knew how much we used H in what we say.

The mild controversy attached to it is my favourite part about it. How to do you even say words that have H's? Do you just ignore it or do you do a slight vacuum cleaner sound when you are about to say such a word? I also find that the particular approach that people take when pronouncing (or not) this letter says a lot about them.

H is not just a letter, it's the meaning of life. With H, you could cure all diseases, get smarter, and bring world peace to earth. H is more powerful than all of us combined. Soon H will go to earth, and deem 20 people a god. Thanks H, for bringing us love and harmony.

17 I

I'm self-centred so my entire world revolves around I, I, I. I = my life

I is the best. My initials are II

I is my fvorite letter bec my name start letter I. I is straight this straight line to be sucess and peace

I is the best letter ever I love it it's the best. my name starts with it

18 U

I love this letter because It's rare to find people with names beginning with U.

This is my favourite letter.

U is my #1 favourite letter.

Because of it's shape

19 W

Both my last name and first name start with it, and so many cool words with it too. World, Word, Will, Wonder, Wander, Wings, Wish, Wist, Way, West, and the irony of its pronunciation only makes it better.

I honestly just think this letter looks cool and is fun to write - especially in cursive. Good on you, whoever designed this letter.

My last name, favourite animal, and favourite country start with W. Williams, whale, and Wales.

Waldo wouldn't be the same without this letter.

20 Y

Y is a funny letter! It's yummy and yucky at the same time. It's allows you to yo-yo. How would we know what things are like if snow wasn't snowy and how would I know when to go to bed if I didn't get sleepy? Z feels special because people like an underdog and it's at the very end. But Y is the real underdog because it's second to the last and few care about that.

A vowel and consonant. Instantly makes a word or name it appears in harder to pronounce. A great letter.

This letter looks the best, even though my name doesn't start with it.

This is a chromosome and is neither a consonant nor a vowel.

21 T

T is the best letter ever. Is'nt it obvious. T is a puzzle. When you draw it without lifting the led off the paper, you will have to overlap another line that u have already drawn. I'm still trying to figure out if I can solve the puzzle.

The most used consonant and second most used letter.

T is great and the best. T resemble smile and stile.

The starting letter of my best friend. I love her so much. She is so gorgeous

22 Q

Q is the best letter. It may be the least used, but it's quaint. It's quirky though quiet. Not to mention it looks cool when used as a substitute for C or K

It's like an "O" but with a little tail. I like that.
But if you could vote twice I would also pick R

I love the letter Q! It's my favorite even though it isn't in my name.

The letter Q is cute
Also it's basically the least common letter.

23 N

After A my next favorite letter is N. It represents the New begining. New itself represents New and something fresh. It has a unique shape as well.

So many negative words start with 'N' but 'n' is in knowledge. So many letters bring peace but 'n' is unique.

I don't believe you. There is a horrible word that starts with this letter. Don't show it to me.

N=Nirvana? Why is it not already down, much less than in the top tens?

24 P

P is the best letter in the whole alphabet because it starts the name of the greatest band ever. The greatest band ever happens to be the one I am referencing the lyrics to right now.

Most imPortant words start with P: People, Pee, Peanut, Polyester, PayPal, and so on. P is the most perfect, pretty, peaceful, picturesque alPhabet!

I like P because it has a poppy sound (that is, it doesn't fade like L or R), but it's not nearly as sharp as, for instance, K. Yay opinions!

My name starts with P and P is just Perfectly and Particularly Positively sPectacular!

25 O

My favorite letter the second most common letter after E. Everybody's name in odd squad starts with O. My favorite shape is shaped likeO. Circle.

O...24th? O is the beginning of my favorite song by imagine dragons "On top of the world" Are you kidding me!?!?

It's a letter but its also a SHAPE and a number! How many letters can be letters shapes AND numbers-none! O is the best

The only letter that's a shape, easily the coolest from an impartial stand point. O wins!
