How Many States in America Start With the Letter “a”?

Four American states have names that start with the letter “A.” Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, and Arkansas are the mentioned states. Along with the states, American Samoa is another American territory that starts with the letter “A.”

Alabama, which became a state in 1819, has been a member of the union the longest of the four states whose names begin with the letter “A.” Alaska, which was admitted as a state in 1959, is the youngest state on the list.

Arizona joined the union in 1912, and Arkansas became a state in 1836. The letters “M” and “N,” more than any other letter in the alphabet, are used to begin state names.
