Let’s see if there is a correlation between the strength of a hurricane and the name of that hurricane with this season’s upcoming hurricanes. First let’s look at patterns of past storms only taking into consideration those hurricane names that have been retired due to the severity of the storm.
A pattern to watch are names that have ‘AL’ in them like past storms Allen and Alicia as those names can indicate storms that appear as one way and then surprise us and go in a different direction or peter out all together as if their possible damage is all an illusion like Alberto did this year. This was a curious storm since it also ended in ‘O’ like retired names Cleo, Hugo, Hereto, Humberto, and Otto. However, the ‘AL’ came earlier in the name so it’s traits dominated over the ‘O’ at the end. Like Marco Polo, names that end in an ‘O’ are ones that are remembered. This year’s storm name that ends in ‘O’ is Ernesto, so that will be a storm to watch.
And interesting side note is that the name Beryl for a storm as that name indicates that the storm is unstable and isn’t a serious threat. The next storms are named Chris, which ought to do things the hard way with no real damage, Debby, which is a storm that wants to be liked, and then we come to Ernesto, the one to watch.
The storm that comes before Gordon is Florence, which, if true to its name, ought to appear as a problem, but not end up being one. Gordon is the next storm to watch closely as unless a person’s last name counterbalances it, the first name of Gordon implies self-sabotage and anger. So, how much damage will Gordon do? Will it only self-destruct or will it affect everyone around it?
The storms named Helene and Isaac ought to pass uneventfully. Then there’s Joyce. Joyce is one powerful name, just as last season’s category four storm Jose, and thus a storm with that name could be just as powerful. The name Joyce also implies one who nurtures others. Will this tendency show up by the storm Joyce encompassing other storms or will the nurturing part of the name override the powerful aspects in the name?
The next storm to watch after Joyce will be Oscar as the name implies a storm that can sabotage others or stab them in the back. Therefore, will this storm do damage after the storm appears to no longer be harmful? This storm name also has fairness issues in the name, another characteristic that has appeared in 2017’s damaging storms like Maria and Harvey, and older storms Carol, Dora and Flora. Thus, the name Oscar, as a storm name, may be doubly troubling. Only time will tell.
There appears to be a few characteristics that repeatedly show up when analyzing destructive storm names from the past. Those characteristics are, ego, or self-importance, an overabundance of strength without any balancing empathy, wanting to be remembered, fairness issues, anger, illusion, and being a perfectionist. As these characteristics, when appearing in a storm name proves dangerous, how dangerous are these same characteristics in a persons’ name?
