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.
