    Find out here:  http://geology.com/hurricanes/hurricane-names.shtml

    from the start of the year hurricanes are given a girls name starting with A and each following hurricane is give the next letter in the alphabet.

    Atlantic hurricanes have been named since 1950 with Able. 1953's Alice was the first real human-name storm. Traditionally male names have been included since 1979 with Bob. Eastern Pacific hurricanes have been named since 1960 with Annette.


     Particularly noteworthy (e.g. very deadly or very costly) hurricane names are retired. Prior to 1979 some names were just dropped and replaced. Presently, names are picked by a committee of the World Meteorological Organization. Names are subject to change due to retirements and changes however we update as needed and as soon as we are aware of changes.
