    Vend is a letter of Old Norse. It was used to represent the sounds, and. It was related to and probably derived from the Old English letter Wynn, except that the bowl was open on the top, not being connected to the stem, which made it somewhat resemble a letter Y. It was eventually replaced with v or u for most writings.
