Baby Named After Cyclone Yasi

A baby girl born during in Bundaberg, Queensland right around the time Cyclone Yasi made landfall in Australia was named Dakota Yasi. According to the Bundaberg NewsMail, parents Terri-lee Levi and Michael Blackley claimed that the cyclone’s name was short for “Yasman,” a name they had been considering anyway.

Except…Yasi isn’t short for Yasman, or Yasmin (which may be what they meant). It’s the Fijian word for sandalwood, used as the cyclone’s name because no one could come up with a boy or girl name that started with Y.
