In playing cards, the two is commonly called a deuce (“the deuce of spades”), as is a roll of two in rolling dice. This came, of course, from the French deux or two, actually a long time ago in the late 1400’s.

Historical Note: Actually, back then in Middle French, it was spelled deus, and probably actually pronounced “deuce”.
