Webster's 1828 Dictionary

DIGAMMA, n. [Gr., double gamma.] The name of F, most absurdly given to that letter, when first invented or used by the Eolians, on account of its figure. A letter should be named from its sound, and not from its shape. The letter is ef.

Oxford Reference Dictionary

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Digamma Di*gam"ma, n. [Gr. ?; ? = ? twice + ? the letter ?. So called because it resembled two gammas placed one above the other.] (Gr. Gram.) A letter (?, ?) of the Greek alphabet, which early fell into disuse. Note: This form identifies it with the Latin F, though in sound it is said to have been nearer V. It was pronounced, probably, much like the English W.
