Storm


Gender: Masculine
Origin: Old Norse
Meaning: “storm.”

The name is derived from the Old Norse, stormr, literally meaning, “storm.” During the Viking Period, it was most likely used as a nickname for somebody with a blustery personality.

The word has been borrowed over into English, Dutch and the Scandinavian languages, all of which use it as a male given name.

As of 2010, Storm was the 43rd most popular male name in Denmark. His rankings in other countries are as follows:

  • # 94 (Norway, 2010)
  • # 220 (Netherlands, 2010)

An obscure feminine Danish form is Storma, while an English female form is Stormy.
