As TSR is (I'm assuming) a reasonably good snapshot of young people in the UK, I'm curious as to how people usually pronounce the eighth letter of the alphabet? (H, if you hadn't worked that out!)

Please fill in the poll as I'm interested in the ratio!

There's no 'h' in 'h'.

I pronounce it as 'aitch', but a lot of people in India pronounce it as 'hetch'

"Haitch". That's more natural to me, in my opinion.

The letter 'h' does not appear in the spelling of the letter 'aitch'. In other words, there's no 'h' in 'h'.
