Informal betting on strangest storm name

I couldn't resist. What storm do you think will shred the rules of climatology the most? Please tell why, it makes it more fun.

This section is just for fun. There will likely be no winner. Because of this, please do not cross out the names as they form, and please don't bet on a storm that has already formed. ;)

Informal betting on final storm name (Gaja)

No betting on storms that have already formed. Sorry.

Informal betting on strongest storm name (Mekunu)

Winds are in miles per hour, and are 3-minute sustained. No betting on winds from storms that have already formed.
