Hmm...
Onety-One, Onety-Two, Onety-Three, Onety-Four, Onety-Five, Onety-Six, Onety-Seven, Onety-Eight, Onety-Nine....

After saying all that, it makes me realize that it feels really awkward...

In welsh, it pretty much is like this. 11 is Undeg-un, 12 is Undeg-dau, 13 Undeg-tri, 14 Undeg-pedwar.

Which, as a rough translation to English, is 'One ten one, One ten two, One ten three, One ten four'

Onety one, Onety two, Ontey three, Onety four.

Thank the Germans. It comes from their word for the number 11 which is "elf"

I know at least my own language and english have special word for 11, dont know how are other languages
Maybe, when our ancestor had established number counting to 10, some hipster got this idea just to add one more thing after ten: "hey, have u ever heard new number called eleven? probably not, it's something after ten"
