5ive alive!

More number-in-name craziness, this time it makes even less sense to use the number in the name.

Introducing.... 5ive. Yes, 5ive, that is not a typo. How would you say it? "Five-ive" I guess. When you named these, you could have just stopped at the number 5. But noooo, you had to continue and add the meaningless "ive" to the name.

Here are some examples:

A board game:


A movie:


And even a freaking boy band, of all things in the world to have this horrible name:


In each of these cases, THE 5 LOOKS NOTHING LIKE AN F!

At least the 3 has some resemblance to an E, as seen in the previous post.

In this situation, it isn't even leet speak; I don't know why someone would drop the first letter of "five" and replace it with a "5". Why not just drop the whole word and use the number by itself?

Previously was 3 and now is 5. but i think this doesnt make sense cus 5 doesnt look like F at all. boy bands with that name. I wonder how their fans pronounce that.

Love the 5ive board game! lol
I didn't even think about it when I saw it, but 5ive is a bit confusing. I've seen way worse examples by you though.

I hate when people use numbers in this way. What makes them think people are going to think it's cooler than using an F?

People should not do that. There is a record label called 7even records. I think that is so dumb.
