well no because the H on words like Home and Hair you pronounce as a Heh or hah so there is no arguement on that

hay-ch

it's only aitch if you have sloppy pronunciation, in received pronouciation, (generally accepted way of speaking proper) you pronounce H sounds, not drop them, like Have instead of 'ave

the start of the letter has a strong huh sound

If I pronounce H on its own or part of an acronym etc., I say "aitch" as in HTML. That, to me, is "aitch"-TML and "haitch"-TML just sounds wrong to me personally.

However, I say "haitch" when it is part of a word, such as "have", "hamster", "hotel". I do not say " 'ave", " 'amster" etc.

I say "Wedinsday" when pronouncing "Wednesday". Most people I have met pronounce things as I do, I have hardly heard anyone say "haitch" and it does not sound correct as far as I am concerned.
