Aleatory was a word I used in another life as a risk analyst. When we consider uncertainty, the part of uncertainty that is inherent and random is aleatory. The part that is due to our ignorance, our lack of information is epistemic.

A word I like from the world of statistics is

ogive

/ˈəʊdʒʌɪv,əʊˈdʒʌɪv/

In statistics it is an empirical cumulative distribution function.

In architecture it is the curve of a gothic arch.
