Hurricane names for 2009 (not):

My wife and I were struck by the fact that the first two hurricanes to threaten us in 2009 have plebian male names: Bill and Danny. We started to think about a list of hurricane names that would alternate beautiful, elegant women with utterly ordinary men. Here's the real list for 2009. And here's our much better list:

  • Ariella
  • Bill
  • Cecilia
  • Danny
  • Eurydice
  • Fred
  • Georgiana
  • Hank
  • Iolanthe
  • Joe
  • Kimberly
  • Larry
  • Mariana
  • Ned
  • Ophelia
  • Pete
  • Qadira or Quetzalxochitl
  • Ron
  • Stephanie
  • Tom
  • Ulrike
  • Vic
  • Wynona {The official list stops at W, but we don't.}
  • Xavier
  • Yolanda
  • Zeke
