Ð, ð is a letter used in some variants of the Latin alphabet, especially in Icelandic, Faroese, Old and Middle English as well as in ancient stages of the Scandinavian languages. Its current English name is eth [ˈeð] (also written edh). It was pronounced [ð] or [θ] in English, depending on its position in the word. It is pronounced [ð] in Icelandic and has various values in Faeroese.

The letter Ð, ð (eth) should not be confused with the letter Đ, đ (D with stroke), whose lowercase is slightly different but whose uppercase is similar.
