و = واو العَطْفِ

('The waaw of connection' I think)

I left that bit out as I wasn't too sure, I got some help:

The answer is وَ = وَاوُ الْعَطْفِ

Not at all!

I think it means 'the و of Conjunction' (The term is a possessive construction in itself). It is the equivalent to 'and' in English which is technically a Connective.
