It is a word scramble problem...

DEAN - NED = A
ARIEAL - BLAIRE = B
CLARE - EARL = C
DEAN - NED = D
RAFI - ARI = F
GABRIEL - BLAIRE = G
AIDEN - DEAN = I
KOLE - LEO = K
NADINE - AIDEN = N
PAUL - ULA = P
CHARLES - RACHEL = S
TIRA - ARI = T
WOLKE - KOLE = W

The rest of the letters fall out from that.

I guess this means that very few kids do those puzzles on the placemats at Denny's :(
