I'm no expert, but I would venture a guess that the Raspberry Pi is so
popular for two reasons

1) it's cute and a fad right now.

"A Media Darling"

2) it's small size and easy adaptability make it very functional for
adding computer controls to a variety of devices.

As if no-one has ever heard of the Arduino board.
Better documented and better supported than the Pi
Search for the books and add-ons

And if you like robotics

The Arduino is very popular with RC modelers and for quadracopters - read "drones"

Yes you could apart/hack these to use with the Pi, but the point is that they are 'native' to the Arduino and it was there first.

Raspberry Pi is definitely a cuter name that Arduino. *<]:oD

Cats are tiny little women in fur coats.

When you get all full of yourself try giving orders to a cat.
