Fun to discuss, but:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_phonetic_alphabet

the phonetic alphabet was chosen for a reason...  with my call I often switch... Zulu to Zanzibar,  Juliet to Japan, when someone is having trouble with standard phonetics. No nonsense--phonetics have evolved and changed over the years. The NATO standard works bests, but sometimes using similar phonetic systems makes a difference.

I give you new phonetics, drawn from the periodic table of elements:

Actinium
Bohrium
Curium
Dubnium
Erbium
Fermium
Gadolinium
Holminium
Iridium

Krypton
Lutetium
Magnesium
Neptunium
Osmium
Promethium

Ruthenium
Strontium
Terbinium
Unuseptium
Vanadiam
Yttrium
Zirconium

There are no elements that start with the letters "J" or "Q" so feel free to make up your own.

I think you overlooked Xenon..


Yep, I did.  (Transcription error...)
