    Being that you are a artist, that is very creative, sure why not!
    Go for it, this is just for fun anyway!

    Well on second thought, to avoid controversy, there are no numbers such as 1 through 9 in the alphabet!
    Just sayin!
    Nice try though!

    Reminds me of the fellow in New Hampshire that I sold a 1912 AC three wheeler to, he had a 26 car collection. One car with a name that matched every letter in the alphabet.

    The alphabet is a numerical system.
    The phonetic alphabet is a NATO alphabet.
    The alphabet is Semitic proto-alphabet originally.
    There are many language alphabets but ours is more common and is used for coding as numbers and letters.
    Everything we have is a numerical system.
    Language, Music, Math, Engineering, to name a few.

    @alanp561
    Good call on the letter Y= Yunick as in Smokey .
    As to the clarifications noted by @Flathead Dave, all that he has stated is correct !

    The main idea of this particular thread, was to get fellow hamber's to participate, in a manner not often seen, as noted in the tags, listed with this thread.

    So far so good, as stated, feel free to be creative !

    Perhaps numbers aren't technically part of the "alphabet", but they are totally necessary for written communication. Hell, half your "user name" characters are numbers. ;)
    Just sayin':p

    Good call on the user names that incorporate numbers and letters.
    Mine is based upon my old 1941 G.M.C. K-18 Army signal corp Radio Panel van that I used to drive in High School.
    I bought it when I was 17, it now lives in Bakersfield, at a museum awaiting to be restored.
