Jeremy for the most part Storm was started in the beginnning of the year when storms were raving European countries and these were the first subject lines found in most.

It was F-Secure who is widely recognized as naming it, you can see the Wikipedia page here:

So it's been a year and oh hoy what a year. First those then the e-cards and pretty much every single event that made headlines, became a variant.
