Q: What does PEN stand for?



A: After we chose the name and realize PEN could also be an acronym, we decided the appropriate base
for the acronym was
Penpride Educational N
etwork, because we are corresponding and following activities of friends and members on five continents and in many countries.



 pen (1)

"writing implement," c.1300, from O.Fr. penne "quill pen, feather," from L. penna "feather," from PIE *petna-, suffixed form of base *pet- "to rush, fly" (see petition). From the same base comes suffixed form *petra-, source of Skt. patram "wing, feather," Gk. pteron "wing," O.C.S. pero "pen,"
O.N. fjöðr, O.E. feðer (see feather). In later French, this word means only "long feather of a bird,"
while the equivalent of English plume is used for "writing implement," the senses of the two words
thus reversed from what they are in English. The verb is late 15c., from the noun. Pen-pal (also
pen
pal
) first recorded 1938, gradually replacing earlier pen-friend (1933). Pen-and-ink (adj.) is attested from 1670s. Pen name is recorded from mid-19c.
