En (Н н; italics: Н н) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.

It commonly represents the dental nasal consonant /n/, like the pronunciation of ⟨n⟩ in "neat".

History[edit]

The Cyrillic letter En was derived from the Greek letter Nu (Ν ν).

The name of En in the Early Cyrillic alphabet was нашь (našĭ), meaning "ours".

Form[edit]

The capital Cyrillic letter En looks exactly the same as the capital Latin letter H but, as with most Cyrillic letters, the lowercase form is simply a smaller version of the uppercase. Rather than from the Greek letter Eta, from which Latin H originated, the Cyrillic letter En ⟨Н⟩ was derived from the Greek letter Nu. By exception, the Romanian Cyrillic alphabet used N and ɴ,[citation needed] instead of Н and н. The confusion between the two characters forms part of the plot of the Agatha Christie novel Murder on the Orient Express.
