Can someone answer this random question for me?

I'm kind of a grammar snob, so yeah. Y'all know the a/an rule, right? What I want to know is why you say A unicorn and An umbrella. They both start with a vowel! Why is this?

It's just a broken grammar rule such as wouldn't is actually supposed to be will not (willn't) but it's too strange so they change it to sound proper
