    Do you pronounce it "aitch" or "haitch"?

    I say "aitch" but I hear a lot of people pronounce it like "haitch" and it sounds weird...

    Also see this funny sketch by Robert Webb and David Mitchell on the matter.

    'aitch', the other way is needlessly combining the name of the letter and the sound it represents

    I know that it is 'aitch' but I usually end up pronouncing it 'haitch' because I am bad at speaking...

    That sketch was really funny.

    I said "haitch" exclusively until I read that it was wrong, but now I only say aitch if I'm trying to come across as articulate, as it doesn't sound natural.
