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.

Since Z is the last letter of the alphabet, maybe it's the "last camera system you'll ever need".

I mean they could have called it a bunch of things, but probably the most logical were already taken (for example, maybe would have done Nikon M except that Leica has the M-mount so that wouldn't work).
