    I should look up the word origin for trivial before I use it as a title. Instead, I'll just go with it ..... ;)

    The origin of the symbols we call English (or, Latin) letters were pictures. These pictures, pictographs, evolved. Some continued across cultural lines, across languages.

    https://usefulcharts.com/blogs/charts/evolution-of-the-english-alphabet

    Take another step and check further on Wikipedia. Your search there may just be of the English letter or on to the name of earlier symbols.

    Trivial fun is to use something like initials and look back to a meaning from 1,000's of years ago. Here's an example, Dad's initials: E.R.S.

    E was originally a little stick man with his arms raised to the sky :).

    R was a face in profile.

    S was a goad, like a shepherd's staff, used for herding.

    ;) Steve
