Cities with all the vowels



Here’s my list of cities whose name contains all five of the vowels (a, e, i, o, u) in the Latin/Roman alphabet. A couple of interesting findings among the list:

  • The majority of city names with all the vowels consist of multiple words.
  • Six cities were found to contain all five vowels in a one word name – these are highlighted in bold.
  • If you included “y” as a vowel, only three of the cities on the list would remain (two are located in France and one in Saudi Arabia. These are shown in italics.
  • City names with “Mountain” included in it appears to have the best chance of including all five vowels in the USA – four such cities are listed.
  • The largest cities whose name contains all five vowels are both Spanish in origin: Ciudad de Mexico (Mexico City), Mexico and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Any additions are most welcome, but please limit them to cities of at least 10,000 residents. Cheers!

    Do You think 10000 is an appropriate population to be a city?

  3. Dun Laoghaire, Rep of Ireland (pronounced as Done Leary) has all 5 vowels, more than 10,000 people live there but a suburb of the capital Dublin, would this count?
