Either Hurricane Vince https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Vince
Hurricane Humberto sounds like a fun party to be at
'hurricanes are not given names, tropical storms are given names, and they retain their name if they develop into a hurricane'
because they got given their name as a baby?

Don't know how I missed that
Hurricane Helms all day
i don't like this one really
but apparently in Germany severe weather systems can be named after companies i.e sponsored. There was such a system a few years ago named after some global dominance organisation (I think it was Mitsubishi) which turned out to be really serious and killed a few people. Mitsubishi (or whoever) then tried to retract their name from it because of the bad publicity.
Either that happened, or I dreamt it. Can't be sure.
But it was BMW.
