Where do they get these strange names:  Arwen, Barra?  What's wrong with traditional ones Alice, Billy, Christine, Dick, Ethel (I had an aunt Ethel - she hated the name), Fred, Gladys (missed out there - never had an aunt Gladys), Henry, Izzy, Joe, Kamalsheeta...

From https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/about-us/press-office/news/weather-and-climate/2021/storm-barra-named

"Storm Barra - the second named storm of the season - is a name selected as part of the Name Our Storms collaboration with Irish forecasters Met Éireann and Dutch forecasters KNMI."

So it is probably a traditional name to somebody :)
