Latin alphabet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3179 words)
It is generally held that the Latins adopted the western variant of the Greek alphabet in the 7th century BC from Cumae, a Greek colony in southern Italy.
The letter Y when introduced was probably called hy [hyː] as in Greek (the name upsilon being not yet in use) but was changed to i Graeca ("Greek i") as the [i] and [y] sounds merged in Latin.
The Latin alphabet spread from Italy, along with the Latin language, to the lands surrounding the Mediterranean Sea with the expansion of the Roman Empire.
