"Vant" can mean either "won" or "used/accustomed/wont (to)".

"Vatn" is just another way of spelling "vann".

"Vatn" is a spelling variation of "vann". Not commonly used in Bokmål, but still correct.

Try holding down "o" and see if other options appear. If not, you can download a Norwegian or international keyboard.
