Would You Name Your Baby After THIS?!

If a hurricane named Jayden or Olivia hit the U.S., would that stop parents from using them as baby names? Let's check out how, historically, hurricane names have affected babies.

Next, let's look at the 1992 monster, Andrew. The name Andrew remained popular through the entire 20th century and even after the hurricane with the same name decimated south Florida little boys continued to receive the moniker.

Finally, a mystery from 2004, Charley. The popular boy name was on a steady decline until it really dropped off in the 1980s. Then, after the hurricane hit in 2004, the name started becoming popular with parents for their baby girls.
