It cause the creators of new English you could say like the language to be able roll off the tongue smoothly. and from the old times enleofan was the proper word for the number 11. which is to mean one left over ten.

Because Firsteen makes much more sense. First would be put into Firsteen, and Second into Secondteen, just as Third goes into Thirteen, Fourth into Fourteen, etc.
