<vrink> indeed occurs and is given by Lhuyd in AB and is also cited by Pryce. I think initial <f> could generally remain as the exact mechanisms of LC for the initial voicing of /f/ are difficult to work out, whether they are general or through secondary lenition.

"Aha! Cool. I like that your suggestion inclues items like cafos and fenten. But does this mean that we would need initial <ff> as in Ffrynk? (Or does Vrynk occur too?)
