12 Everyday Things We Use That We Didn’t Knew Had A Name

We come across a lot of things on a daily basis and use them or just know what they are. While we are at the stage when we know what anything might mean or be called there are just so many things we don’t know have a name. Like do you know what the gap between your eyebrows is called?

Didn’t even wonder, right? Well, there’s a name for everything we know or have seen exists. That’s one of the best things people have done, even if the names of things we don’t know are really weird or something, they exist. These just always remind us of the world as something that has its own name and identity.


Below are the words for things you never knew had a name:

Aglet

If you were a Phineas And Ferb fan you might probably know what Aglet is. The show actually had a whole episode dedicated to it and I can’t forget it till now. The tip of the shoelace that is covered in plastic is known as an aglet.

Columella

So, your nose is divided into two different parts and has two holes as we all know. But, what is that wall called in scientific terms? The columella is the bottom part that separated your nostrils.

Drupelets

We all have seen bumps on raspberries or blackberries which look somewhat like droplets. Apparently, they are named after them as well and hence are called drupelets.

Pips

The little flesh that we use to cover our ears when we don’t want to listen to outside noise is called as Tragus.

Ullage

Everyone has noticed a small gap between the bottle top and the liquid and often get irritated by it as well. It’s to give space so the liquid doesn’t leak and is called Ullage.

Eggcorn

Neither does this thing have any relation to egg nor corn. It means that whenever you use some word by mistake for someone else.
