How are you all?
I've searched for something related to this question of mine before posting this, but I really didn't find anything. Maybe I haven't searched the right way, if so I'm sorry.
Well, my question is...
Which is the correct grammatical form to write (pronounce) the following example?
1) Mark the right answer with an "X".
2) Mark the right answer with a "X".
The sound of the letter "X" induces us to use AN before it, however it's just a letter, not a word, and it's a consonant. So, what do we have to use in such cases? A or AN?
Same to other letters: F, H, L, M, etc...
I appreciate your attention, guys.

an X, an F, an H, an L, and an N, but a U, a Y and a W;
a NATO meeting (it is an acronym pronounced as a word);
a UFO (the three letters are pronounced separately);
an NCO (the three letters are again pronounced separately).
People are waiting to help.
