    Hi. This should be simple. What do you call the letter U that has two dots over it in Spanish, and what is it in English? The only thing I know is that the two dots themselves are called an umlaut in German.

    Thanks

    In Spanish we call diéresis to the couple of dots over the u, but an u that has two dots doesn't have a special name :D, and from what I know is the same word for English dieresis or diaeresis.-

    Cheers!
