"Frankenstorm" is the most popular name for the upcoming super-storm due to hit the eastern seaboard with floods tomorrow. As Dot Earth's Andrew Revkin points out, this nickname makes it sound like the storm was created by humans and our climate-changing ways. It's also a reference to the fact that this storm is actually the result of three storms being sewn together to create a monster, as it were.
