What is the smallest number whose English name contains all five vowels, each one exactly once?

I apologize for the misspelling. The correct spelling is quaternion (no 'r' in the first syllable).
Collin's English Dictionary gives the definition:
2. another word for quaternary (sense 5).
5. the number four or a set of four
WordNet supports this definition with its own:
the cardinal number that is the sum of three and one
Thus quaternion is considered an alternate name for the number 4.
