### NPR Sunday Puzzle (Apr 25, 2021): Consonants and Vowels

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Apr 25, 2021): Consonants and Vowels
Q: Think of a person in the news (5,4). The first name and last name each have at least two consonants and two vowels. All the consonants in each name come at the start, and all the vowels come at the end. The letter "y" is not used. Who is this famous person?
I usually have an answer Sunday morning, but this took me until later on to solve. Ironically, the first name was a variant of the first one I thought of.

Edit: The first name I thought of was Khloé Kardashian which I quickly dismissed. It wasn't until after the Academy Awards coverage that I figured out the answer.
A: Chloé Zhao, winner of Best Director for Nomadland
