While sunglasses trends come and go, your trustee pair of Ray-Bans - whether you're a wayfarer-wearer or aviator addict - withstand the test of time, year after year. There's no denying the popularity of the American-founded brand but it's only now that people have realised, me included, just how logical its name is.

Consider your mind officially blown because we've just discovered exactly why Ray-Ban - the high-end sunglasses brand - is so called, 80 years after it was first founded. The clue's in the name and it's glaringly obvious. Think about it for a second...



Nope? Prepare to kick yourself because I'm going to explain it in layman's terms. The sole purpose of a pair of sunglasses is to protect your precious peepers from the sun's rays - effectively 'banning' the potentially-damaging UV rays i.e. sunglasses are effectively a banner of rays, a ray-banner, if you will. And there we have it.

I can't help but think there's so many other things that have escaped our radars if we've been missing this trick this whole time.

How shook are you at this realisation? Let us know @soFeminineUK
