Has anyone ever had a hurricane named after them?

This topic came up at work the other day....thinking how cool and evil it would be to revel in the distructive nature of a hurricane that had your name.

Not yet, but Hurricane Zod sure has a ring to it.

If you haven't had one yet, then you probably won't get one.

You're best bet is to hope a hurricane with the same letter as your name starts really tearassing around down in Florida, so your name might be chosen as a replacement.

You've got this stuff in the current 20ish year span, but no James/Jim? WTF?

Edouard, Paloma, Rebekah, Odette, Gustav, Isidore, Fabian

Come on, Hurricane Jim could easily be a TV show done by FOX that would be cancelled after 6 episodes

My dad's name is Dennis. I got him a framed copy of a newspaper with the headline "Dennis kills 25 in Cuba"

It would be more appropriate to name a drought after me. I'm such a proscratinator.

Since my name is Zack, no I haven't. Nor will I ever.

Nope. Definetly not with the "K" spelling of my name. But I searched google and there wasn't any spelled as "Crystal" either.

The first result from a search of "Hurricane Crystal" has a link to a spiffy glass bong, though.

Hurricane Crystal/Krystal would be a great name for a sports drink, surfboard, or alcoholic beverage. Or an illegal street drug.
