COMMENTS

The name of the number may contain other vowels (A, E, I, O or U) in any place and order. "American English" means that no "and" is used, e.g., 101 = "one hundred one".
Therefore (and because 1000 = "thousAnd" is the least number using the letter "A"), for any term a(n) < 10^4, the number a(n) + x*10^4 is also in the sequence for any x > 0, and so is any number a(n)*10^(6k) + m, m < 10^(6k), k > 0. (The statement isn't true with x*10^3: for example 1084 + 999000 does not have the letter "A".)
In French, 92 ("quAtrEvIngt dOUze") has the property, and as a consequence the corresponding sequence consists mainly of 92 + x*100 with any x >= 0, and 472 + x*1000 with any x >= 0 ("quAtrE cent soIxantedOUze"; there is no other term below 4000, from where on others (4012, 4061, 4062, ...) come into play.
In German, the first number to have an 'o' is "Million". Since the 'I' must be preceded by 'A' and 'E', the corresponding sequence would start only after 18*10^6: 18000005, 18000009, 18000015, 18000019, 18000021, 18000022, ...

EXAMPLE

1084 is "(one) thousAnd EIghty fOUr". This is the smallest number whose English name contains all 5 vowels A, E, I, O, U in this order, therefore a(1) = 1084.
