What do languages that use other scripts call each letter of the Latin alphabet?
Greek uses French names for Latin letters, because French was the prestige Latin alphabet language: “Vitamini Ah, Vitamini Beh, Vitamini Seh” (to use fauxnetics).
Or least, they did. You will of course hear a lot more English names of Latin letters now in Athens, I expect.
