Issue: Hurricane names.

DFO: I hope I'm not being indelicate here, after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and the threat of Hurricane Ophelia, but I've often wondered what people would name a hurricane if they were free to immortalize a significant other who has created a major storm in their lives. I'd probably name my hurricane Gayle, after the gal who dumped me before I found my True Love of 30 years. Or Linda, my high school sweetheart who dumped me after graduation for an airman.

Question: If you were to name a hurricane after a stormy significant other that was in your life at one time, what would you name it?
