Spelling at the phone

Hey, I got a problem today to spell the name of a street called Uralmendi, as because of my French accent, my "r" and "l" are quite similar so the lady asked me to spell it by using names of cities, like for example "l" of Lugo. But that didn't help as I don't really know enough cities to give one for each letter. So I would like to know if someone could make a list of cities I could use for each letter, like "b" of Barcelona, "m" of Madrid. Just for the anecdote, this lady hung up on me right after that, rude, Spain :3

Hi Marvin, an interesting question. I will try to find something. In English, the most popular way to deal with such situation would be to use so called NATO phonetic alphabet:

Alfa, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliett, Kilo, Lima, Mike, November, Oscar, Papa, Quebec, Romeo, Sierra, Tango, Uniform, Victor, Whiskey, X-ray, Yankee, Zulu
