- storm: [OE] Etymologically, a storm is probably a ‘violent disturbance or agitation’; its meteorological connotations appear to be a secondary development. The word comes from a prehistoric Germanic *sturmaz (source also of German sturm and Dutch, Swedish, and Danish storm). This was probably formed from the base *stur- ‘disturbance, agitation’, which also lies behind English stir.
