Why is it Double U and not Double V?

It's so obvious. It's so Plain to see. Let's start a petition and maybe they will see we should stop calling it double U and start calling it double V.

  • In script it could be double U. Depends on your own hand writing style.

  • It is also double V in Spanish. I think we call it double U because of the script writing practiced at the time.
