many years ago, when successfully programming my Spectrum computer to beep methods of up to 22 bells, I needed one-letter names for the bells above 12.
The ones I came up with were
h - tHirteen
f - Fourteen
v - (for xV)
s - Sixteen
n - seveNteen
a - aighteen
i - nIneteen
x - Xx
w - tWentyone
z - that was the last one I thought anyone would want to go up to
1-twelve (t) were as usual.
Not a brilliant numbering scheme, but at least it gave a tenuous connection between the letter and the bell number in most cases, which the CC scheme does not.
I still have the program tape, but eventually the computer died.
