Really, if you read this list of Storm names released by Met Eireann for 2018 and 2019, you'd be absolutely forgiven for thinking it was a list of possible names for an affluent D4 couple's first child.

Names include Wyn, Tristan, Violet, Erik (with a K), Freya, Hannah, Saoirse, Ronan, Gareth and Ali, all of which you can totally imagine having a double-barrel name and owning a bunch of properties in Dublin that they're sitting on to allow the price to mature so they can sell it off when the time is right.

Interestingly, most of the names were taken from Twitter polls across Ireland and England, which obviously speaks to the demographic of people on Twitter who go in for these kind of competitions. Speaking at the announcement, Met Eireann head honcho Evelyn Cusack said that "(while) it is too early to say whether the coming winter will be a stormy one or a quiet one we are prepared with a new set of 21 names for whatever nature may throw at us."

Yes, because the name Storm Violet is going to strike fear into the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Storm Violet sounds like an electropop act that's just recently gotten their lead single into a campaign for ...And Other Stories, in fairness.

Here's the list in full.
