Ai is an unincorporated community[1] in Fulton County, Ohio, United States, established around 1843. The origin of its name has been a local controversy: some say that it was named after the biblical city of Ai,[2] while others believe that it was named after one of its founders, Ami Richards. The story continues Ami was a man, so others dropped the 'M' from his name to make the town's name more masculine.[3] Ai has been noted for its short place name.[4]

A post office was established at Ai in 1846, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1903.[5]
