Sneak Peek

I found a little inspiration a few months ago.  While visiting one of the trade shows, I saw many artists showing monogram jewelry. But it was all the same idea, a disc or oval, with the same basic lettering.  How boring! I figured I could do something a little bit different and create some monograms with character.  Here's a sneak peek at my first one, the letter "C" handmade in sterling silver.   It will look different when it's oxidized and added to a chain.
What I'm wondering is what letters to do next.  I tried to be scientific and to look up popular names but there are too many lists.  (I did find out that Moore is a more common name in Northern Ireland than Ireland.)
So I thought I would ask you for your suggestions.  Please vote in the poll on the right side or leave a comment with the letter you think I should make next. Thanks for your help!
