THE SECOND LETTER
OF THE ALPHABET

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the the second letter of the Alphabet?

Ever think about the letters of the alphabet? Probably not, unless you’re a kindergarten or preschooler teacher but the fact is that each letter has its own unique origin and its own unique history.

In the Latin alphabet, which is the standard English alphabet, the second letter is the letter B. The letter was first derived from the Greek alphabet, who had the second letter of beta in their sequence. This is what most looks like a capital ‘B’ although the Phoenician alphabet before the Greek had the letter ‘beth’, which also looked somewhat like a ‘B.’ In the beginning of the letter’s history, there was only the capital ‘B’ and the lower case ‘b’ wasn’t introduced until Roman script came along and those writing in this fashion started, and continued to, write the upper case ‘B’ missing its top loop.


Big B Little b, What Begins with B?
