Find Names Starting with R

Letter R is the eighteenth letter of the Latin alphabet. The original Semitic letter may have been inspired by an Egyptian hieroglyph for tp, "head". It was used for "r" by Semites because in their language, the word for "head" was res (also the name of the letter). It developed into Greek ? and Latin R. It is likely that some Etruscan and Western Greek forms of the letter added the extra stroke to distinguish it from a later form of the letter P.
