When I spell my name over the phone to various interlocutors who have
trouble either with my foreign patronym, my foreign accent, or both, I
say "l" as in Louise.

I often wonder if it's uncomfortable for Louise to have an l in her
like that, but whatever. 

The creative possibilities of this system are quite large and allow you
to slyly express any number of notions under seemingly innocent
orthographic cover.

climb endlessly a ladder which turns like a wheel.
