Hurricanes from Space

The Big Picture has some fantastic photos of hurricanes from orbit, prompting 2 questions:

1. What's with personifying Big Weather by giving them names? Does anthropomorphising them help us come to terms with the sheer amount of power present in them or something?

2. Can we stop going head-to-head with nature now please? I get that steady feeling that we'd lose.
