Informal betting on strangest storm nameEdit

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. ;)
