    Roger was the US phonetic alphabet for R in WW-II. Since it fit “does not sound like any other in the new International, has some meaning in many languages, and was used by other nation’s alphabet”, it was kept.

Geography: MA/TX; Gender: female/male; Ethnos: white/brown; Experience: academia, Senate/municipal, cabinet; Age: 70/45; Religion: United Methodist/Roman Catholic. No other combination provides this variety.
