Coincidence or a real pattern? The last syllable of each of the famous people who died this week has been "ay". Random or not?

Asked by elbanditoroso (28844points) May 17th, 2019

I M Pei (ends with ‘ay’ sound)

Doris Day (ends with ‘ay’ sound)

Tim Conway (ends with ‘ay’ sound)

Pure coincidence? Or is something targeting these people?

Yeah, it was probably the “ay” sound that did them in.

Seems the shorter the name, the longer the life.
