After some consideration, we've decided that the name "Double U" has little historical and no Poetic resonance. We're starting a petition of Tracy K. Smith, the Poet Laureate to rename this beautiful letter. We feel this endeavor will elevate the language, give us focus on the sounds of speech, and bring people together in a creative endeavor.
Phase 1 will be the petition. Click HERE to sign our petition!
Phase 2 will be a collection and culling of possible names until we have a list of possible candidate names.
Phase 3 will be a worldwide plebiscite to determine which name will be the new name of the letter W.
