I'm curious what letter starts the name of the most U.S. cities. My first thought is "B", however, with all the Sans, Santas, and Saints, it could be "S".

If anyone comes up with a real answer, please provide the source.

Yep, easily "S", and you can thank California for that one.

I can't think of many cities that start with "B".

Are we talking about major cities or just all cities. The letter "A" has a healthy number:

Albany
Atlanta
Atlantic City
Athens
Albuquerque
Annapolis
Asheville
Alexandria
Aurora

I think a good question is how many city names start with a vowel. It seems most cities names start with consonants.

I would guess "S" as well, thanks to California, and the fact that the most common town name in America is Springfield.
