15 flavors of geekdom in the 2012-13 winter storm name list

If you need any more proof that geeks now rule the universe, you need look no further than the list of 2012-13 winter storm names from The Weather Channel. As Winter Storm Luna bears down on the East, I took a good look at the list and was stunned to find at least 15 different flavors of geekdom represented among the 26 names. Behold, a veritable cornucopia of geek!

First off, here’s the full list:

Athena, Brutus, Caesar, Draco, Euclid, Freyr, Gandolf, Helen, Iago, Jove, Khan, Luna, Magnus, Nemo, Orko, Plato, Q, Rocky, Saturn, Triton, Ukko, Virgil, Walda, Xerxes, Yogi, and Zeus.

Here’s the breakdown by geek type (with a lot of overlap):

  • Greek pantheon geek: Athena, Triton, Zeus
  • Roman pantheon geek: Jove, Saturn
  • Norse mythology geek: Freyr
  • Finnish mythology geek: Ukko
