What’s in a blizzard’s name?


The names chosen are primarily of Greek or Latin origin. Nemo is a Greek male name meaning “from the valley.” Nemo in Latin also means “no man” or “no one.” Following storm Nemo, winter storm Orko was the next to arise in the upper mid-west. Still on the horizon are the names Plato, Q (after the New York City subway line), Rocky, Saturn, Triton, Ukko, Virgil, Walda, Xerxes, Yogi and Zeus. Let’s hope we won’t have reason to remember them. (Except in the case of another sledding party).
