Find Names Starting with Y
Letter Y is the twenty-fifth letter in the Latin alphabet and represents either a vowel or a consonant in English. Y first appeared as the Greek letter upsilon. The Romans borrowed a small form of upsilon as the single letter V, representing both /u/ and its consonantal variant /w/. In later ways of writing Latin, V is typically written as U, for a vowel, or V for the consonant. However, this first loaning of upsilon into Latin is not the source of Modern English Y.
