WORDS THAT USE VENI-
What does veni- mean?
Veni- is a combining form used like a prefix meaning “vein.” A vein, in contrast to an artery, is one of the systems of branching vessels or tubes conveying blood from various parts of the body to the heart.
Veni- comes from the Latin vēna, meaning “blood vessel, vein.” The Latin word vēna is also ultimately the source of such vein-based words as venous.
Veni– is a variant of veno-.
