This is awesome

This is even than what FA says about it

First arch -- > maxillary artery (1st is maximal)
Second arch --> Stapedial
Third arch --> Common Carotid (C the third letter of the alphabet)
4th arch (4 limbs) = Systemic

and they had no mnemonic for the sixth arch

For 4th arch I think of the 4 looking like an A for aortic arch
For the 6th I flip the 6 down to look like a P
Proximal Pulmonary Arteriets and PDA (ductus arteriosus)
