In English, we call
w "double-u", referring to the original representation of [w], which looked like
uu, or two
us. Then, in French, they pronounce it "double-veh", presumably because the modern form looks like two
vs or "veh".
The question is: do all languages which utilise the Latin alphabet do a similar thing, giving a name to the letter which refers to either the letters
v? Or the converse question: is there any language which has a unique name for
w, whose etymology is not linked to another letter in any recognisable way?
