We Finding Nemo enthusiasts know quite well that Dory is loyal, fearless, and the ultimate optimist, but there’s also no denying that she’s the beloved buffoon of the movie’s maritime gang. Despite the fact she embarks on a quest across the ocean to find her new friend Marlin’s son Nemo, Dory, who suffers from short-term memory loss, just can’t seem to remember the name of that little guy she’s searching for.
This winter season, The Weather Channel has taken the liberty to give winter storms “noteworthy” names to raise awareness of the storms’ potential impacts. We commend the The Weather Channel for using its pick for the letter N so wisely; we definitely agree that Nemo is a noteworthy name. Given Dory’s inability to remember anything for more than ten seconds, here are some “noteworthy” storm names that start with N that she’d probably use instead when referring to Winter Storm Nemo.
1) Ne-Yo: Ugh, Dory’s “so sick of [snow storms].” There’s also so much snow in this video. It just makes sense.
2) Nestor: After invoking Greek mythology in naming Winter Storm Athena and Zeus (still to come), The Weather Channel’s decision to name this storm Nestor would must definitely follow suit.
3) Nevada: It’s not just home to Sin City, but it also literally means “snow-covered” in Spanish. Meta.
4) Nigel: Like from The Wild Thornberries. Definitely noteworthy.
5) Neptune: Pluto will be the name of the storm after next. Sure, it’s not a planet anymore, but Neptune would rack up points in the consistency category for The Weather Channel.
6) Nero: Yeah, Nero and Nemo has three letters in common. Also, The Weather Channel has already named two winter storms Brutus and Caesar. Despite Nero’s infamy, no one puts this particular emperor a corner. Nero is just as cute as Brutus and Caesar. Nero is just as smart as Brutus and Caesar. People totally like Nero just as much as they like Brutus and Caesar. We should totally just stab Brutus and Caesar!
