I've always considered this a girl's name and I just can't see it on a boy (though that's probably only because my niece is named Storm) She's older than me so I've known it as her name my entire life.

I personally really love the name Storm, but I am Danish, and as it stated it has become fairly popular here. I think it has an edge to it most old or classic names can't quite reach

I believe this name actually fit any kind of child. Maybe it being a tall, skinny guy who likes his video games or him being that amazing underwear model. Storm is the perfect name for a kid.

Imagine if he doesn't grow up to be a devillishly handsome, hugely successful, confident, funny Adonis? Imagine a "Storm" who is mousey, quiet, perhaps spotty, weedy, lanky..? This name is just ridiculous and will make the poor kid a target for life.
