So I think to myself, “There seems to be a disproportionate amount of clothing lines that start with a vowel.”

Let’s see. There’s Abercrombie & Fitch, Arora, Adidas, American Eagle, Old Navy, Armani, Arizona Jean Co., ukanbeu, Arrow, U.S. Polo Association, John Ashford Essentials

On the non-vowel side there is Nike, Banana Republic, Levi’s, Calvin Klein, The North Face, City Streets, Brandini, Wrangler, Soup Diner, Haggar, Ferruche, Pierre Carde, Triumph, Cactus Clothing, Bugle Boy, Van Heusen.

That’s an 11:16 ratio.

I present this as conclusive evidence that names beginning with vowels are catchy, which may explain the rampant popularity of names such as “Agnieszka.”
