U is for Unicorn.
The unicorn is a mythological creature bearing one horn from the center of its forehead. These fantasy creatures, usually depicted as beautiful and graceful white horses with an ivory or silver horn, have captured hearts all over the world and are especially endearing and marketed to young girls. The unicorn is a symbol of innocence.
