Find Names Starting with Q
Letter Q is the seventeenth letter of the Latin alphabet. In the earliest Latin inscriptions, the letters C, K and Q were all used to represent the sounds "k" and "g" (which were not differentiated in writing). Of these, Q was used to represent "k" or "g" before a rounded vowel (e.g. "EQO" = ego), K before "a", and C elsewhere. Later, the use of C (and its variant G) replaced most usages of K and Q: Q survived only to represent "k" when immediately followed by a "w" sound.
