This feels like a name for a character in a book.

This works as a name but Sunny doesn't (if you don't know what I mean look at the Sunny name page)?

Starelli Says:


Tornado and Hurricane Black were created as marketing ploys. The mother knew that if she gave them names like that, they would, "Storm the US Open." Tornado prefers to go by Alicia, her middle name, these days. It's a bit of a sad story all around. Google them.
