OMG OPHELIA, NO! I mean, I agree on all of the cool names, but the lame names... Felix is one cool cat. Ophelia is too cool to be on that list. Hermione reminds me of Harry Potter, it's just fantastic! Chantal is 20% cooler than most Hurricane names. Beryl reminds me of metal, some kind of heavy emo-girl who thrives on heavy metal. Ingrid is a very posh name.

However, Olga, Hortense and the other names are kinda strange. The worst ever is definitely Humberto, and worst retired name is Fabian. Looks like is someone headbutted the keyboard in 1995.This is what the name HUMBERTO reminds me of. A bee. Yes. Bees hum. So does Berto. Agreed?

Most of the 2018 list is kinda lame. Why? They are typical Plain Jane names. We need a Shaniqua fast!
