Is the letter "Z" pronounced Zee or Zed?
I've heard both.
And is there a reason for the difference?

Both. The English (i.e.—people from England) prefer “zed.” I believe the reason may be for clarification considering that “zee” shares a similar sound to other letters like “bee,” “see,” “dee,” “gee,” “tee,” and “vee.”

"Zed" by the Brits, and "zee" in the US.

You can use both. I do. For example I will say zed for the letter, "zeebra" instead of" "zedbra. Also Zed nation doesn't make much sense, so sounds better if you say Zee nation.

Zed in England where they actually do speak English. Curb is spelled kerb and jail is spelled gaol. Tires are tyres.

Zee. Zed is probably someone's name.

I think in US it’s Zee, in UK it’s Zed.

In Canada you will hear both Zed and Zee depending on the area. I am one Canadian who pronounces the letter as Zed. .

Zed is a British way of saying the letter Z. Zee is the American way of saying it.
