Why Vé?[edit]

In every Danish and Swedish source it is known as Vi and not Vé. Why is this English page using the spelling Vé?

It is important to express the right spelling. Because when we encounter vi in place names in Denmark and Sweden, it is usually a good indication that the place was formerly a holy place, a so-called vi (what is written as Vé here).

Reason: I can only guess as to why it is written as Vé in English and my guess will be, that it is to show how to pronounce the word. But as explained the right spelling is also very important.
