FIRST as to naming WINTER or better described NON TROPICAL storms since we are not in winter. i think its a good idea, BUT NOT (feminine or feminine mythical) NAMES. NAMES are for warm core/Tropical storms. (explain below using ancient type thinking that might offend some as to the gender explanation but understand its used as a way of explains science as ancients used feminine & masculine parables to explain the body's to universes inner workings.
Cold core storms or storms that FIRST BEGIN as cold core should receive either only numbers with its descriptive title as SuperStorm 01 of 2012, Super Storm 02 of 2013, Super Storm 03 of 2013 etc or a masculine type title i.e. military numbering yet using laymen terms using Greek lettering AND THE FIRST GREEK ALPHA NUMBER should be 3 LETTERS after the last used by Tropical storms in that year in case any late tropical activity occurs. Tony last used letter T name as to Tropical formations therefore the next lettered name would begin with V, W, Alpha, (Q, U, X, Y, and Z not used) Therefore if one uses the example i/others share, Athena should be "2012/13 October Beta" or "2012/13 Atlantic Beta" instead of Athena or MASCULINE alphabetical Greek mythology names instead of Athena
The reason for an ancient train of thought is cold core represent the Male i.e. more cold heart-ed (ITS NATURE/HER RULES, i'm only a "gopher") and we use the last name as its ID as its western culture and other cultures were usually the male name that is last (sir name) therefore IF A TROPICAL BETA FORMED this year it would be TS BETA (FIRST AND ONLY NAME IS BETA = feminine)while the cold core version would be the "2012/13 October Beta" (THE SIR NAME/LAST NAME is BETA.
These are just example i leave it to the pros to hash it out (TALK, SHARE IDEAS) just THINK SERIOUSLY as John Hope (May goodness bring peace to his soul, one of a handful of people i look up to) I THINK would of ,peace
