Σπεύδ-ε > Sped-e > Speed

speedy

Σπεύδ-ω (spevd-o) in ancient and modern greek means to make fast,quickly, succeed, and generally it has to do with speed. The imperative is σπεύδ-ε (spevd-e) and becomes a sped-e in the old english to become speed in new!

In anglo-saxon it also meets as spaed.

That’s why the fast, sympathetic,wellknown mouse from the cartoons, named after the speed that distinguishes him and called Speedy Gonzales. (arrrimba!)
