The first hurricane on Earth didn't have a name as there were no people around to name them.

However, the first official hurricane name given to a storm in the Atlantic basin was "Able" given to a category 4 hurricane in the 1950 hurricane season. The storm affected North Carolina, New England, and Atlantic Canada, causing 11 fatalities, and a total of $1.041 million (1950 USD) $9.5 million (2010 USD) in damage.
