There was a storm of horns there of course!
The storm giant invasion began from these mountains. They descended on the helpless towns, their battle horns echoing through the mountains the entire way.
Some sage researcher of fauna and flora traveled there and discovered the landscapes and mountain ranges to be fairly steep and a lot of nasty monsters like Dragons live there. If you look closely on the map it is shaped with a horn pointing east, like the horn of a Blue Dragon.
We all know that blue dragons generate lots of electricity and breathes lightning, another term for Storms.
So, there you go, Storm and Horn shaped made it Storm Horn mountains.

It may have been because of the wild and untamed nature of the environment, teeming with monsters and harsh terrain.
The mountains were renamed Storm Horns after a bad case of druidic matrimonial infidelity ... so many lighting storms during those days.
There are mountains and cliffs with deep steep, but in fact, the name comes from how many horn mead they can drink, and it's a lot!
...the storm part of the name comes from, you know, what happens after drinking very quickly...burp!...er...sorry!
Well, the answer is obvious, there was a storm of horns...or storm of mountains on horns...not quite sure...

The battle was bloody, and many died. The Storm Riders lost, but one person Adoeak Gellantara the Hunter used his magical Horn of blasting to scare the giants away.
Legend saidd that the legendary Adoeak Gellantara still haunts those mountains and every night, and if you go there, you can hear the overwhelming horn.

Because Shoe Horn was already taken and Storm Horn was what they came up with.
It was originally where the Storm Giant teenagers when to make out. The name has slightly shifted since then.
How the Stormhorn Mountains Got Their Name
The range was once known as "Scott's Peaks", so called after the only individual living there; Scott . However, the goodly folk of Cormyr considered Scott to be somewhat of "a d!ck" and desperately wanted to rename the majestic heights. This exercise, while seemingly easy to accomplish, was cruelly difficult as they were also desperately afraid of Scott who was rather fond of the moniker and "a d!ck". Thus it was decided that a new name would be chosen at random to, hopefully, mitigate Scott's ire. I mean, if everyone started referring to them as the "Fluffy Tomato Buckle Mountains" they'd at least have numbers on their side - Right?
The task of inventing, as it turns out, a theory of randomness and its subsequent implementation fell to Philip the goatherd who was picked by drawing little bits of paper from a helm with names written on them . So Philip, being not only a tender of goats but also an amature artificer, set about constructing a device that would utilize the power of randomness to choose a new name for "Scott's Peaks". And also goats in some fashion. Philip toiled day and night for two weeks until, at last, he was satisfied the nut had been cracked .
The unveiling of Philip's creation, to which Scott was not invited, took place just outside the town of Arabel on a lovely Tuesday; about mid morning; brunch was included. As Philip flung the cover obscuring his device aside (using more flourish than he had practiced which resulted in a rather amusing anecdote still repeated to this day yet far too long to recant at this juncture), a gasp escaped from all the NTBGFC gathered about. Strangely, the source of this gasp was not the intricate weaving of hoses, wires, levers, gears, wooden doodads and metal thingamabobs enclosing and often intersecting with a fuchsia-colored goat  tethered in the midst of the Escherian contraptions revealed post-flourish, but rather the imposing figure of Scott, also revealed post-flourish, who had not been invited .
Unknown by most assembled, the entirety of Philip's herd was composed of the rare gasp-startled goats of Sembia  which were highly prized from their rich, buttery fur and elusive nature . Overwhelmingly startled by the collective gasp, the goat began running in an effort to escape the horrible, vivid nightmares now racing through its caprican imagination . Thus, the Philip Engine® was set into motion.
What, exactly, the Philip Engine® was supposed to do remains a mystery to this day. Many modern scholars have speculated that it was meant to be some sort of quantum-level probability wave collapsing device . Others claim it was a tachyon emission portal generator . A few have put forward the notion that it an intricate weaving of hoses, wires, levers, gears, wooden doodads and metal thingamabobs enclosing and often intersecting with a fuchsia-colored goat which did absolutely nothing save spawn a convenient cover tale for another of Elminster's "communing with the gods" fiascos . We may never know the real truth . What we do know has been pieced together from several eyewitness accounts handed down through the ages . Suffice it to say that the Philip Engine® did something which caused it, Scott, Philip, a fuchsia-colored goat  and a large chunk of Arabel to "poof" into nonexistence.
In the end, the NTBGFC, being nothing if not a sentimental bunch, decided to let the name "Scott's Peaks" stand as a memorial to the once-feared-but-now-looked-back-upon-nostalgically Scott even if he was "a d!ck". The range was later renamed to Stormhorn by Phearun Sturmhurn, a dwarven cartographer who labeled practically everything after himself.
 Scott (not his real name) was a hill giant. Being forced to live in the mountains after losing his home to an invasion of psychically enhanced voles  was in all likelihood what lead to his bad attitude and generally pessimistic outlook.
 The goodly folk of Cormyr , having lived so long under the darkly phallic oppression of Scott, were not terribly bright.
 "Cracking the nut" was a term used to denote finding a solution to a difficult problem. It was also an inside joke about Scott, being subtle enough not to raise his dander but not so subtle as to be lost upon the not terribly bright GFC .
Psychically enhanced voles or "Clairvolents" were among the many, strange creations of Elminster the wizard which he would churn out at an astounding rate when "communing with the gods".
From this point forward to be known as the GFC.
From this point forward to be known as the NTBGFC.
 That being the only paint color available due to a recent and unforeseen infestation of chromatically challenged tree frogs or "Monotoads".
 The NTBGFC were fastidious sticklers for etiquette and proper decorum. Arriving to a function uninvited was considered the height of bad taste. Then again, Scott was "a d!ck".
 Elminster vacationed widely.
 Gasp-startled goats were, in fact, quite docile and easy to ensnare. Unfortunately, the NTBGFC were given to gasping at the drop of a hat which gave rise to the adage "As hard to catch as a gasp-startled goat in Cormyr".
The "local wisdom" of gasp-startled goat behavior maintained that whenever they heard a sudden inrush of air, they were reminded of the fierce desert winds responsible for many a gasp-startled goat's demise in their native Sembia. This viewpoint was entirely incorrect and displayed the NTBGFC's utter lack of geographical knowledge. The real reason for gasp-startled goats unusual reaction, as with so many other seemingly inexplicable things, was of course Majik.
 It was not this.
 It was not this, either.
 It was this.
 Yes, we do. It was 14.
 Mostly from Elmara's seminal work "Why I Should Have Never Taught Elminster a Damn Thing About Majik, Ever".
 Her name was Jujubee. Awwww.

The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)
As the protector of the mountains, he used the power of weather to protect these mountains from those evil beings that would do harm to it. Many severe battles were fought against the evil inhabitants of the caves that opened now and again in the mountains, and many days and nights you could see his arcane storms smiting those that Stormcaller deemed a threat from the hills and valleys that surround it. But nothing lasts forever, and even Stormcaller knew that he would not be able to protect his mountains in his aging condition. So this is what he did - he appealed to his deity for a ram's horn that was without peer in size and perfection. So much he had done for this mountain range that his god heard his plea, and granted his request.
Stormcaller then poured all of the magical power he had along with his own soul into this horn. He had his animal friends place it in a magical grove on a hidden plateau on one of the mountains in the range, unknown to this day where. But the legends state that if the lands are ever in dire threat again, one worthy will find the horn, and use it to once again summon the storms of vengeance to clear the land of the evils that infect it.
It involves goats and a storm.
