I can provide numerous such alphabets! We did precisely this when naming the methods. the idea being that some of the already rung TB methods were adjectives such as Wonderful, Zealous, Egregious, Noxious and so we followed suit. As I say we went through a number of such alphabets as you suggest.
In retrospect I rather regret retaining Eaton Neston & Blue Nile. They were in my original Smith's type composition and I quite liked them so I kept them. However, with two new methods we could have had a simple composition to remember: A, B, C etc to W. But there we are such is history. I welcome improvements on the plan!

This is a shame as it is an excellent alphabet of method names. A quick look
through a theasaurus suggests that there are good names to complete the
alphabet, eliminate the boring names such as Easton Neston, and provide some
other alternatives if required, such as:-
Daft, Dire, Dreadful
Wacky, Weird, Wretched, Wicked
Xenophobia, Xenomania, Xpletive?
