an Unique is noun

I can only think of “um-brel’la”. There aren’t too many word starting with a “U” that requires an article “an”.

But an “A” is used for the following words: university, unicorn, union, unit and a “used car”etc……
An ugly sister.

An untoward incident.

An unexpected consequence.

An unhappy compromise.

An utterly miserable existence.

An understandable decision.

An undignified exit down a drainpipe in the dead of night.

An unfortunate miscalculation.

An undertaker.
