Abstract

What do Samuel Plimsoll, Titus Oates, Bela Lugosi, Chou En-Lai, Count Basie, Don Quarrie (a sprinter), Arthur Mitten Brown (an aviator) and John Barry Humphries have in common? The answer is that their names include one of each of the five vowels a,e,i,o and u--they are aeiou people. So are Rosalind Russell and (gorgeous) Gussie Moran (a tennis player).
