History & Reconstruction

The ancient pictograph is a picture of a seed sprout representing the idea of continuing to a new generation. This pictograph has the meanings of "continue," "perpetuation," "offspring" and "heir."

The Modern Hebrew name is nun, a Hebrew word meaning to "continue," "offspring" and "heir." This two-letter word is the original name for the letter. The phonetic sound for this letter is "n," as it is in all other languages.

The Early Semitic evolved into in the Middle Semitic script and continued to evolve into in the Late Semitic script. The Late Semitic script became the Modern Hebrew נ and ן (final nun). The Middle Semitic script became the N (written in reverse direction from the Hebrew) in both the Greek and Roman alphabets.
