Gender: F Origin of Hurricane: Spanish from Native American word name

Hurricane is a storm, but it's also a baby name, thanks to rising tennis star Hurricane Black -- whose sister's name is Tornado. There's no reason this tempestuous choice can't work for boys too, inasfar as the name can work for any child. As a name, Hurricane is definitely original and attention-getting, but is it a name you'd want to carry around for life?
