Me too, Meganan. I do recall hearing that Bob was the first male name given to a hurricane so that must have been stuck in the back of my mind. Good bit of information, thanks for posting.

Took a guess and got it right, but the most wicked storms I remember were Dolly in 1954, and Gloria in the 80's. I got caught in both of them.

I got it right, but for the wrong reason. I picked it because it is the only one that doesn't have an even number in its year.

I picked Juan, the only non-American name. After I read the answer, I realized that I probably should have gotten it.
