We're still in hurricane season, and for people in Louisiana, that brings chills down their spines. Over the past few years, most Louisiana residents have been affected by at least one hurricane.

For us here in Southwest Louisiana, the two that come to mind right off the bat are hurricanes Laura and Delta who slammed right into Southwest Louisiana in 2020.

A while back, we posted the list of the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season's set of names for storms for this season. Here are some of the off-the-wall names that they will use this year like Arlene, Gert, Idalia, Katia, and Ophelia.

So that got me thinking, what if the hurricane's got Cajun names, what would they be? We came up with some real Cajun names of people we know and also some Cajun words we thought you might get a kick out of.
