General question: Why in US give names in snow (Juno etc), hurricanes (Katrina) etc?

Basically, the National Weather service gives names to hurricanes to make them easier to track. They do not name winter storms.

The Weather Channel started giving names to winter storms in an effort to increase ratings. They realised their ratings go up when a tropical storm gets a name and they are hoping the same will happen with they give a name to winter storms.

Day 2:

The snow isn't too bad yet (maybe 12 inches so far), but it continues to snow. No power outages yet either, but I doubt that would happen. Honestly the most dangerous thing that could happen is people going out there driving under the conditions with the slippery roads and whatnot.
