Fashion, as in the rise of intentionally amusing paired names like ' Slug and Lettuce ' and 'Frog and Firkin' see Puns, Jokes and Corruptions below in the late 20th century, is responsible for many more recent pub names. This tradition dates back to Roman times, when the owners of tabernae used to hang some vine leaves outside their property to show where wine was sold. Its later forms resembled a blackletter y , and it was never pronounced with a y sound. Archived from the original on 6 July The "Slug and Lettuce" is another example of a chain of food-based pubs with a prominent brand; founder Hugh Corbett had owned a small number of pubs, to which he gave humorous or nonsensical names, with the effect of differentiating them from competitors. The most common tree-based pub name is the Royal Oak, which refers to a Historical event. A possible explanation for doubling of names is the combining of businesses, for example when a landlord of one pub moved to another premises. Archived from the original on 1 March
