I was trying to find a logical explanation for the use of the letter “Z” as the mount name.

Looks like the letter “Z” is “N” rotated 90° clockwise.

"We can get a volume discount on the 'N's we use for 'Nikon'.. We just turn half of them 90 degrees and voila - instant cost savings! We'll be back in the black in no time!"
