V is for Value. The Amiga was known for price-performance, out-competing offerings from other computing platforms.

What happened to V? Or is it just a bit difficult to come up with anything

And I thought Wordworth was from Digita not Softwood, but never mind

You could be right, however, I recall the name Softwood being involved with it somewhere. I even have Wordworth v1.0 for the PC somewhere....
