26 Winter Storm Name Suggestions For The Weather Channel

In honor of Winter Storm Leon and his fellow named storms, here are 26 winter storm names for the 2014-2015 season. And, yes, all of these are actual names that people give to their children.

1. Augustine

He would be a classy storm, the kind that retires to the study with some brandy after dumping 6 inches of snow on your hometown.

2. Blossom

Peteneems / Via peteneems.tumblr.com

Because the irony of a name like Winter Storm Blossom will make you smile as you huddle, shivering, under 10 blankets.

3. Calypso

Just a gentle reminder to book those tickets to the Caribbean.

4. Delgado

Vampire-Princess / Via vampire--princess.tumblr.com

It means "skinny" in Spanish, so how vicious could Winter Storm Delgado be?

5. Ebnezer

Ansoro / Via ansoro.tumblr.com

Maybe he'd be as stingy with the snow as he is with his money.

6. Fennel

Isn't it time our winter storm naming system started to reflect that multiple children are named Fennel?

8. Harmony

During Winter Storm Harmony the snow will fall in only the gentlest, most non-intrusive way.

9. Ingrid

Because the little-known Boy Meets World character deserves to be immortalized somehow. (She jumped in the pool to impress the cool kids, after all!)

10. Jezebel

Julia Loves Bette Davis / Via julia-loves-bette-davis.tumblr.com

If we're going to reclaim this name for women everywhere, shouldn't we reclaim it for winter storms, too?

11. Kiran

Okay, Winter Storm Kiran might not exactly be a picnic, but it's just such a COOL name that my inner 13-year-old can't wait until she shows up!

Snow can be so magical!

14. November

Via blago-mene.tumblr.com

Just to confuse people when Winter Storm November doesn't show up until late February. And, yes, this is a name that people are giving to their children.

He may be a grouch, but he's still better than Winter Storm Kronos.
BenLikesPictures / Via Flickr: benlikespictures

He may be a grouch, but he's still better than Winter Storm Kronos.

16. Prudence

She's a fun old gal, but Winter Storm Prudence lacks the intensity of a younger storm.

Winter Storm Vulcan: all the logic of Spock (or at least his Vulcan half) and all the fury of the Roman god of fire and volcanoes.

23. Wood

Parents who want their children to have a terrible middle-school experience are particularly fond of this name. So why not name a storm after it? Think of all the puns!
