The name Kyrill stems from a German practice of naming weather systems. Anyone may name one, for a fee. Naming a high-pressure system costs $385, while low-pressure systems, which are more common, go for $256. Three siblings paid to name this system as a 65th birthday gift for their father, not knowing that it would grow into a fierce storm.
Strange, but I'd like someone to name the next Hurricane after me. "Hurricane Bubba made landfall today at 8:30 10 miles SW of Port Arther."
