To name a few others:
GREEK CAPITAL LETTER ALPHA to DIGAMMA (or STIGMA)
CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER A to IE

By the way, I took advantage that in French numbers up to 16 have a special
name to design a system to "read" hexadecimal numbers (instead of spelling
when a digit from ten to fifteen appears):
11 seize-et-un (that is the most difficult to remember)
70 septante (better than soixante-seize!)
80 quatre-vingt ou octante ou huitante
10000 seize mille
But I never find myself to use it: habits are too much engraved,
and 71 is definitively "soixante-et-onze", and 18 is "dix-huit"
instead of "seize-huit" to me.
