Interesting, interesting.

In Spanish the V sounds like B, I thought it was the same in Greek, but it turns out to be the opposite.

Spanish (Castilian) has a lot of Basque influence, and that is one trait: in Basque there's no "v" sound (nor letter), though we have half a dozen sybilants. The sybilants didn't enter Castilian but the lack of "v" sound did.
