a weblog of wordplay by Eric Harshbarger
CARNELIOUSBack in my very first post to LOGOLOG I mentioned the surname of an NFL player that used each vowel (and "Y") exactly once: UMENYIORA. I speculated that this was probably one of the few names with that property.
Well, if we drop the "Y" restriction and just concern ourselves with the "real" vowels, I've found another.
A Google Serach reveals that this has been used as both a first and last name.
I first found out about it while watching the local news one night.
Any other such names out there?
And dare we dream that there might be someone named: CARNELIOUS UMENYIORA?
P.S.: by the way, each of the above names also has the added bonus of being heterogrammic, meaning they do not repeat any of their letters!

Comments about this article:There is a word in spanish that has all the vowels... "MURCIELAGO" is spanish for "BAT", the animal, not the baseball tool.
