I know we name hurrinanes, but is naming winter storms by weather channel is a silly practice?

    I think it's silly to name winter storms. That is just a marketing gimmick by the weather channel and has no practical use.  I think that's fine for hurricanes to be named though, but as World is becoming more global maybe diversify names pool too.

  • I think it's fine to name them. I see no harm if it makes people and the weather channel happy.

    There is a booming business model for naming things most people didn't expect.  There is even a business for naming stars or land on a moon, with a certificate of ownership.  I think that's perfectly fine.
  • No, it's actually informative.

    @joecavalry , I am not sure how it's informative.  If a winter storm is coming, I personally don't think of it as Stella vs Alexa, Instead I want to know what it will do to my commute.  Unlike Hurricanes, winter storms are not memorable enough to actually get a name.  Its not like Sandy, Irene, Catrina...
