It seems like each letter has a meaning which I believe is sometimes based on the letter’s shape and/or hieroglyphic origin as well as its sound. The following are best guesses based on patterns. I believe that many short words (like the words “do”, “run”, and “sock”) are often acronyms.
A – Alpha
The letter A can be traced to the first letter of the Phonecian alphabet which was supposed to represent the head of an ox. It looks like a pyramid. I believe it mans “first.” I think it may also relate to the word “architect.”
John Calvin, in his Institutes of the Christian Religion (1536), repeatedly calls the Christian God “the Architect of the Universe”, also referring to his works as “Architecture of the Universe”, and in his commentary on Psalm 19 refers to the Christian God as the “Great Architect” or “Architect of the Universe”…Masonic historians such as William Bissey, Gary Leazer (quoting Coil’s Masonic Encyclopaedia), and S. Brent Morris, assert that “the Masonic abbreviation G.A.O.T.U., meaning the Great Architect of the Universe, continues a long tradition of using an allegorical name for the Deity.” (wikipedia: Great Architect of the Universe
B – Blue or Blood (or both)
The letter “B” may have started as the Egyptian hieroglyph for floorplan for a house. Phonencian letter “bet” or beth” symbolizes the number 2 in Gematria and is the first letter in the Torah.
C – to see
The letter “C” comes from the same source as the letter “G.” That is Gimel, the third letter of many Semetic alphabets. Originally it may have been an Egyptian hieroglyph for a staff or shepherd’s sling, the weapon David used to kill Goliath. (1 Samuel 17)
D – Dust, Dirt, or most likely, Door
The Semitic letter Dâlet may have developed from the logogram for a door. This might also matter since it seems there is a door for the Sun to find. Names like “Doris” evoke that. It’s possible that there is a mirror meaning, both related to the Sun: dirt & door.
“Well Friday about a week ago, Leroy shootin’ dice, and at the edge of the bar sat a girl named Doris, and ooh that girl looked nice.” – Jim Coce “Bad Bad Leroy Brown” 1973
E – Elephant
E is the 5th letter of the alphabet. The Elephant represents the Sun. It looks like the Roman number “3” turned sideways. I believe the Game is sometimes framed as Mouse vs. Elephant. E is also the most common letter in many languages, and for that reason, it is used to crack a code in Edger Allen Poe’s The Gold Bug. (As far as I can tell, all of Poe’s works included coded references to The Game.)
