The World Meteorological Organization annually rotates six alphabetically arranged names for Atlantic tropical storms.  The couple in this article had two highly destructive storms named after them during the hurricane season of 2017.  This is the first time this has happened for the couple in their 75-year marriage.  It is likely to be the last as the hurricane names may be retired following the 2017 season. 

You can read a more about this couple’s long relationship in the New York Times article cited in this article from Time Magazine to see how they made it through that many years of marriage.
