So Nikon picked "Z"

(Which is pronounced "Zee." You don't say "Ped" for "P," right? )

That could be a language thing. When kids learn the alphabet, they are taught "Zee" in English, but "Zed" in others, including my own Dutch.

Nobody likes to be told the way they should pronounce letters when talking or thinking in their own language. So depending  language, the "Zed" is adopted or ignored.
